Not so long ago a Swedish doctor-hygienist B. Akerblom wrote the book on… of furniture, more precisely, about the simplest of its species on the chair. “Five thousand years of sitting incorrectly!” he argues, based on numerous anthropological and anatomical data. His insights not only interesting and practical recommendations for professionals. They indicate that the furniture is still little developed, and therefore, extremely exciting field of technical creativity.
The small modern apartments is in “irreconcilable” conflict with the majority of the samples existing furniture. And the headset, and sets, and items usually don’t want to fit in destined for them by the tenants of the place: the space, the layout is inconvenient. Affected by the fact that functionally any room in the current home is now drawn to the universalization: the bedroom is often a study, a dining room — more of a place for the whole family, living room and often a bedroom for the parents of its members; the kitchen today is not only room for cooking, but also dining room. Hence the special requirements for modern furniture — not so much aesthetic as utilitarian, to be sure she was comfortable, practical, universal (or at least combined) and compact. More planned departure from the traditional bulky, hull structures, all the more noticeable preference to built-in.
And while this problem occupies the minds of many specialists: designers, engineers, artists, interior, architects. Their findings are devoted to exhibitions, magazines, books; some samples being developed by the industry. The fact of these developments, which are available for self-production, we decided to devote a special section of the journal.
Of course, in finding a convenient furniture options involves not only experts, but also the tenants themselves — and that means that many of our readers. So, opening a new section, and we look forward to your active participation in it.
TABLE… the WALL
In a small kitchen not accounting for every inch, and besides cutting table-Cabinet, usually occupying almost all the space between the sink and stove absolutely requires at least a small dining table. But no matter how miniature, foldable, compact nor was this table on the legs, he takes himself under another so scarce square meter.
But why does he have to stand even when folded? Could you not keep him on the floor… on the wall? It would be very convenient: do not interfere — and always at hand. Here are two version of this wall-mounted table.
