In order to achieve sustainability in its most complete expression, I have decided to base my research for this project on the main concepts of the circular economy logic and to let those premises guide all the further design decisions.
Gathering the sustainability key ideas and the furniture making process, two words standed out as mandatory features to be considered : Material and Versatility.
As the material guarantees not only the sustainable source, but also the structural possibilities, versatility ensures that the furniture piece will be long lasting through reconfiguration and the possibility of replacing and recycling damaged pieces.
With that in mind, a modular structure made of recycled HDPE or aluminum, with glass, cork or reclaimed wood accessories was the chosen solution to the problem.
With only eight basic pieces and an easy assembly system, the project also proposes a dissolution of the way design is consumed by giving the user the possibility of rethinking and reinterpreting his own furniture, setting the original designs as mere usage suggestions.

Morf is a building system which relys on modularity to achieve eco-efficiency.
With its premises grounded on the circular economy logic, MORF`s modular pieces ensure that damaged parts could be easily replaced and recycled as well as new forms and uses could be recreated by its owner.
