Indie Furniture by Nicola Enrico Stäubli

INDIE FURNITURE is a bespoke storage solution consisting of universal furniture joints and customized wood panels. A unique piece of furniture is created with the help of an online planning aid hat also provides the list of materials. The connectors are purchased online whereas the wood is supplied through the carpenter around the corner or the do-it-yourself store.

Nicola Enrico Stäubli, alias Nicola from Bern, explores a new form of customization: Since the knowledge of the consumer needs will always be limited, he designs with a focus on the greatest possible flexibility. In today’s world of the open source concept, consumers take on the role of co-designers. Nicola’s designs have an openness allowing the hybrid customer the most versatile usage. Beyond a reference to the 2.0 economy, a similar product typology pairs with the requirements of a sustainable design – it’s adaptable to a changing living environment thus providing long lifespan.

The designer about his work: “My projects represent an approach to design which has more to do with mathematics than with a personal and inward looking composition. I am always in search of the primary source of design – the initial point. It is by far the most important step because each and every decision in the design process is based on it. You end up with a physical manifestation of this idea which is to be judged not after the concept of beauty but as the logical result after a series of consistent decisions in the designing process.”
