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.

Indie Furniture by Nicola Enrico Stäubli

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.

Indie Furniture by Nicola Enrico Stäubli

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.”

Freely suspended from the ceiling using the Yoyo suspension system.

All installation elements are made of nickel-plated metal.

Simple and meticulously designed, the unpretentious Yoyo suspension system by the german manufacturer acousticpearls lets you suspend panels from the ceiling anywhere in a room. There are round openings on the back of the panels. Two panels can be placed back-to-back and hung at any height using the steplessly adjustable mounting fixtures of the suspension system. Voilà, a lightweight floating element that makes a statement: You can create stylish partitioning elements between workspaces, spaces within a room or anywhere else that needs acoustic protection without any available walls.

The Yoyo suspension system can be used to suspend a pair of equally-sized panels by acousticpearls freely in a room. The panels can be suspended either vertically or horizontally. The suspension system of the panels consists of two ceiling anchors using a simple metal cylinder with a cover plate, two thin, extremely sturdy metal cables with ball-type nipples, and two freely height-adjustable mounting fixtures for attaching the panels.
