LIVING MACHINE
SPACE FOR LIVING
SOFIA * 2009 * CONCEPT

My home is my castle and my castle is me.
Between my past and my future is my mind.
My life is a “tunnel”.
The endless circle of life turns the life into a machine,
but there is a light in the end of the tunnel...
PROJECT
The interior looks like a machine: it has two faces (states) and every each of its elements is able to move and take different positions.
STATE I: The sofa is closed. Closing is made by turning the main pinion. It communicates to the other pinions by mechanism of jacks. The mechanism pulls up a metal construction upholstered in leather. The table is dragged by hand.
STATE II: The movement mechanism is one for the sofa, the screen for the book shelves and the corps furniture. The wire ropes and the secondary movement mechanisms are hidden in the ceiling and flooring. One pinion’s revolution equals to quarter of the length of the static pinion. The pinions are tackled to the wall by shaped metal.
