TETRAN MODULAR FURNITURE

Interior design system

Problem

Standardized furniture not meeting size, design & style requirements. 15 million ton of Furniture waste per year in the US.

Goals

 Design a building block module for living space. Optimized design for production, manufacturing & logistics. Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication (DaVinci)

Solution

A rectangular module with 5 connecting surfaces/faces, an open face to access the connectors from the inside, this interior module space doubles as storage. Different size modules adds to design variations. Exterior changeable cover panels in different materials, color and texture creates endless design possibilities. With 5 simple panels that can be assembled into 11 building block modules. Fewer standardized modular parts significantly simplifies manufacturing, logistics & storage. Any damage to the furniture can be repaired by simply replacing the damaged parts or module, thereby increasing the lifespan and reducing waste and pollution.

TETRAN is the most versatile, environmentally friendly, modular furniture & interior design system. Repurposing a dozen parts to create thousands of unique custom designed furniture. Modules are repurposed for new functions or redesigned for alternate living spaces, there are endless color, finish, and material options to keep up with even the most rapid changes in style, Re-design and re-purpose furniture saving consumers time, money, and waste. Any damaged elements are easily and inexpensively replaced. The result is a beautiful, functional, versatile home furnishing solution for everybody.

PHOTO-REALISTIC PRODUCT RENDERING

PRODUCT DESIGN & 3D RENDERING

TETRAN is the world’s first fully integrated modular design furniture system that allows you to design your own furniture for your unique living space. The outmoded traditional furniture model of one piece of furniture, for one function, one living space, and one style is made obsolete by a modular design system that allows for multi-functional designs, scale-able to the dimensions of any living space, and available in an endless array of material and colors.

Economical: Furniture Today projects consumer spending for furniture and bedding in 2012 at $81.6 billion—largely a result of replacing outdated, damaged, or useless furniture. Modules are re-purposed for a new function or redesigned for alternate living spaces, there are endless color, finish, and material options to keep up with even the most rapid changes in style, and any damaged elements are easily and inexpensively replaced. The result is an extended furniture life cycle that will save consumers tens of thousands of dollars.

Environmental: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that furniture accounted for 10.8 million tons, or 4.3 percent of our trash stream in 2010—again, largely a result of replacing outdated, damaged, or useless furniture. By means of simple re-purposing, restyling, and repair, TETRAN’s modular design eliminates the need for millions of tons of furniture waste. In fact, TETRAN’s core elements are made from 100% recycled and recyclable eco-friendly materials. So not only is furniture waste reduced by never having to throw it away, but obsolete traditional furniture waste is recycled to make new modular furniture.
