berlin born, industrial designer Yi-Cong-Lu recently surprised at berlin’s international design festival (dmy) with his multi-purpose series of living tools or wohnwerkzeuge. testing the limits of conventional architecture, he’s crafted three different pieces that can be fitted and molded into different uses depending on your needs. lightboy, fade, and panel are a perfect example of flexible, clutter-free, and multifunctional design; just the kind we at colectivo futuro appreciate the most.
lightboy is a portable light fixture that can be molded to provide light wherever necessary. it can hang or lean against a wall, or it can be used as a flexible stand-alone lamp.
fade is a curtain partition that can be used to subdivide spaces in different sizes based on needs. it’s particularly useful for creating separate work environments or the often needed guest space.
panel is a multi-purpose, mobile object that varies its use depending on its orientation. it can be used as a table, a temporary roof, or a space partition. it also contains a neon lamp for added functionality.
check out the short video below for more details on the three pieces. also keep track of yi-cong’s designs by visiting his website.
