Our lives are constantly shifting and changing, so why shouldn’t our personal environments adapt as necessary? Sometimes we just need an extra shelf for a new collection of books, or we’d prefer to stand at our desks rather than sit. The Modos series of modular furniture makes that possible with a simple set of wooden boards and aluminum connectors that can be assembled into tables, shelves, plant stands, standing desks, stools and more.
Eliminating the need for tools, this flat-pack furniture set clips together various sizes and shapes of FSC-certified, furniture-grade plywood laminated with formaldehyde-free glue. While a lot of flat-pack furniture is so complicated to assemble, you practically have to set aside an entire day to do so (ahem, IKEA), the Modos series fits together in seconds.
The hexagonal shapes that result when you assemble the parts are structurally strong, yet disassembling them is just as easy as putting them together. If you move to a new place that requires a new configuration, you simply take your creation apart and start anew.
Made of solid birch and alder veneer cores in rectilinear forms to reduce waste, the wooden parts are durable and sustainably sourced. The anodized aluminum connectors won’t weaken with repeated assembly and disassembly.
“Modos was started by two guys in Brooklyn who were frustrated with most of the furniture on the market. Much of the ready to assemble furniture on the market today is made to look simple to assemble but is actually challenging. When moving into a new home, furniture is often thrown away and replaced because it doesn’t withstand the move or doesn’t fit into the new space. The founders of Modos thought there must a better option, which is why they invented Modos, a user-friendly furniture that assembles without tools and can be reconfigured into a different shape each time a move occurs. Modos is a high quality and sustainable product for a reasonable price that will stay with you for a lifetime.”
