Hi, i'm a final year design student studying at The Nottingham Trent University, Enlgand. I'm currently developing a project that concerns additional seating in the home. I'm trying to design a piece of multi functional furniture that comprises of four rectangular blocks that when not in use form a cuboid that can also be used as a small stool. When the blocks are seperated it can turn into a seat and also a small table surface. Basically the idea behind it is that current foldaway chairs once they've been used for extra guests etc. are put away and used occasionally. Hopefully with my proposed product, when it's not in use it can still be used and will take up little space and is stackable. I understand it's a bit of a strange concept and i would appreciate any feedback at all, good or bad, or any further links. At the moment i'm looking at ways to getting the blocks to fit together securely without compromising the cuboid look too much.
