24/10/2012 - The Cologne-based start-up formkind
has developed a unique modular system
, the first of its kind worldwide. Revolutionising conventional spatial design, the delicate steel frame covered with thermally shaped felt allows the creation of stunning installations to optimize the visual and acoustic qualities of a space. During this year’s Orgatec
, the market-ready formkind structures will be presented at the company’s Cologne studio.
One concept, hundreds of designs: the patented formkind
system allows the creation of individual space structures that can be reconfigured as and when required. Each formkind module consists of chrome-plated, polished steel elements, which are bolted together with specially designed connectors to form the basic structure. Additional modules can be connected at each side of a triangle. With adjustable angles, the connectors facilitate flexible orientation.
The covers made of recyclable PET fleece and felt can be magnetically attached to both sides of the steel frame, resulting in a radically new approach to modular spatial design.
A new idea of space: the easily reconfigurable and self-supporting formkind
space frame system features a modern design and provides inspiration for new spatial concepts, either as temporary solutions for trade shows and events or as an integrative part of modern office interiors. With the formkind space frame system
, products can be presented in totally new ways, public buildings can be given an unconventional interior design and in open-plan offices customized meeting units can be created and reconfigured as required. The unique design of the modules’ connectors, the variability of the modules and the easily exchangeable covers provide almost endless applications and space-in-space design solutions. The felt covers are available in many colours.
