Tall umbrella trees were the inspiration behind this home renovation in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Fabian Tan Architect was asked to turn a traditional pitched roof home into a striking modern home. While the upstairs renovation was minimal, the transformation on the ground floor was quite dramatic.
More than just a functional entertainment hub, however, the tree is also envisioned as place to interact with other family members by leaving messages that light up on the sides via LEDs. In essence, this is more than just a new all-in-one furniture idea – it is a different way of looking at how we live and interact in common spaces, a personal and personable alternative to traditional interior design strategies.
Set along a wall in a modern home, these designer storage objects by Alf De Fre begin to blur the boundaries between architecture, interior and furniture design. Spatially, they seem as much like extensions of the surrounding walls or art placed against them as they do places to put things. They are more than just bookcases or shelving units.
Each unit can rotate into various functional configurations and can also exist off the grid; they rely on a highly-insulated exterior shells, a series of solar panels and mini-turbines on either end (that both generate power and pump rainwater to waiting collectors).
