Lightweight Storage Solutions

The textile furniture series London consists of a wardrobe, a cabinet as well as a bag-like storage object.

Commonly used storage facilities for clothes are mostly made of heavy and thick-walled materials like wood or press board. However, the walls of a storage object only serve as a protection against dust and generally do not need any static features.
For this reason the series London makes use of textile materials. By means of a framework made of metal sticks the fabric protect the clothes from dirt to the same extent, but they make the furniture more lightweight and mobile. Additionally the textile material facilitates entirely different applications, both in the construction of the furniture as well as in its surface design.

The violet cabinet made of organic molton makes use of the principle of a sliding door. The opening mechanism is incorporated into the textile part so that it can do without additional guiding rails. On the internal side of the textile mantle are rubber bands. These rubber bands are stretched when the furniture is closed and contract when it is opened, which results in the door gathering to the outside. The dressers smoked surface picks up the gathering of the wardrobe when opened, which prevents a wrinkling of the fabric.

A mirror can be installed if desired. It hangs flexibly on a metal stick which is fixed to the upper open part of the cabinet. It is connected to the metal frame and adjustable in height.

Whereas the cabinet can be used to stow folded clothes like t-shirts, pullovers or trousers, the beige wardrobe serves to hang up clothes hangers. This furniture provides room for shirts, dresses or jackets.

The slip cover made of pure cotton was constructed custom-fit so that it gains an enormous strain and stiffens when put over the metal frame. The zip placed in the front part forms the door. Behind this door a wooden clothes rail surfaces which was incorporated into the slip cover.
The wardrobe is intentionally kept open at the bottom so that even extra-long dresses can be stowed away. It is also completely dismountable and can be installed and uninstalled with only a couple of hand movements.

The mint-green rhombic tower is composed of a metal frame over which an elastic textile tube can be put and then is tightened where the metal sticks cross. This creates pockets which can be filled through a slit in the textile mantle. These pockets are intended to make room for underwear, socks, caps, scarves and other accessories which can be seen from the outside due to the transparent fabric.
