Projects included in the round-up include a BIG modular sofa system, which was designed and inspired by the Danish studio’s works, and a collection of modular sex furniture by Irish designer Domhall Nolan that nods to retro gym equipment.
Materials including fibreglass and mesh were used to create these modular designs, which have been customised for a wide range of purposes and spaces.
