SPIN - A Workspace Unit


Around 42% of bulky waste collected, which equates to about 670,000 tonnes, consist of furniture disposed by householders in UK annually. Designing a furniture that creates an attachment to the user. By using modular design, it allows user to be more interactive* with the product. As a result, furnitures are being much more emotionally attachment which in turns allows furniture to have a longer life expectancy aiding the issue of preventing future furniture waste. * interaction with the product are ways to allow user to customise and personalise their furniture This is SPIN SPIN is a modular and flexible workspace furniture that is designed to work in small spaces. Product design student Levon Lim began the project with the objective of designing furniture that would inspire a sense of ownership within users. It’s development was guided by the utilitarian aspects of the product and simplicity of assembly. SPIN is interactive and customisable. Users can pivot the various table tops and interchange the shelving units, achieving different heights, to fit their own desires and project their own image. My design can improve life by supporting our busy life, On Time. One of my insight I found out was, people who have bigger table tend to be messier, resulting in difficulty locating their items. SPIN was design to help creatives to organise their items and allowing them to spin away items that do not need to be used at that point. SPIN helps with organisation within the user's workspace and customisation to fit their lifestyle better.
