Transforming furniture is often quite linear in its design, a clear triumph of science and function over art and interaction. This clever dresser idea by Martin Saemmer challenges the hyper-useful approach to convertible designs by putting creativity and variability in the hands of the user.
In its most compact form, the unit can tuck against a wall or into a corner like any other typical, rectilinear piece of interior furniture, exposing a more plain and simple side or a complex asymmetrical facade (or both).
As it expands, this storage system reveals drawers of different sizes that open up in different directions.
When fully expanded, new surfaces are revealed that can be used as shelves as well as boxes that can be used as closed or open storage – a functional but complex dresser.
