For my graduation project I choose to look at compact living. In my research I looked at living rooms and the fact that for an increasing amount of homes the living room, dining room and kitchen are becoming one room meaning all the furniture has to share a smaller space. There are already a lot of innovative solutions for storage and surfaces but not so much for seating. Folding chairs exist but most aren't designed for sitting in for long periods of time like lounge seating. Lounge seats and sofas often are large and waste a lot of space, which in multinational rooms, could be put to better use. My current design is to create extra lounge seating when needed, for example; when friends and family are over and other seats in the house are not suitable for relaxing in. The current design can go from two seats to three seats and lastly 4 seats. This Project is still on going so the final outcome may be different to the current design.
