Do you not want to mess with existing finishes and fixtures? Not have time to install new furniture or furnishings? Or are you perhaps living in a temporary dorm or apartment and just too lazy to make impermanent design decisions? The ROOM by ODA is a modular collapsing-and-expanding dwelling system that solves your bedroom interior design problems with one stylish, simple and reasonably affordable space-creating design object.
Composed of three essential elements (Pod, Media Station and Satellite), ROOM is a room-in-a-box bedroom solution that expands and contracts as needed to conform to user requirements. Simple construction and materials make this a design-within-reach for its target demographic (primarily younger buyers) and customized materials allow people to upgrade to more elegant versions should they choose (for a price).
What started as a simple one-off project for a loft bedroom space became a mass-producible commodity when the designers started to realize the benefits of a modular room system that could adapt to different styles, spaces and needs. Built in seating, storage, lounging, reading and viewing spaces make for an ever-varied, whimsical flowing interior design that also defines itself as a singular, fully-connected object set apart from the space it is within.
“SINCE ODA’s INCEPTION IN 2007, IT HAS QUICKLY EMERGED AS ONE OF THE MOST RECOGNIZED FIRMS OF ITS GENERATION, PROMPTLY ESTABLISHING A REPUTATION FOR DELIVERING IMAGINATIVE AND MOLD-BREAKING DESIGNS. SEEKING TO REORDER ARCHITECTURAL PRIORITIES BY PUTTING PEOPLE FIRST. ODA CHALLENGES CONVENTIONAL PERSPECTIVES OF DWELLING THAT WILL, OVER TIME, INFLUENCE LIFE IN OUR CITIES. THROUGH A RANGE OF PROJECTS, ODA SEEKS TO RECONCILE THE CONDITIONS OF VERTICAL URBAN LIVING WITH THE QUALITIES WHICH BENEFIT AND NURTURE US AS HUMAN BEINGS: THE DESIRE FOR PROTECTED SHELTER WHILE OBSERVING WIDE PERSPECTIVES, THE SEAMLESS TRANSITION BETWEEN INDOOR AND OUTDOOR SPACES, AND THE GENERAL IMPROVEMENT OF LIFE THROUGH GOOD DESIGN. ODA CREATES VALUE WHICH BY ITS NATURE CAN BE REPLICATED AGAIN IN ANOTHER FORM.”
