While home sizes shrink, the need for cleverly designed space-saving furniture grows! The result of an exploration into collapsible furniture, “Major Tom” is a modular system that allows quick, easy assembly, disassembly and modification of almost any type of furniture. As in the case of a table, once the top is equipped with a modular panel it can be connected with legs in just a few seconds. Depending on the situation, an extension module can transform a normal table to a standing one. There are endless possibilities – besides building a table it also works for other furniture elements like seating or mounting speakers. The design’s key component is a conical steep-thread on which modular panels are screwed with a 90° rotation. This connection is secured by a simple clicking mechanism.
