A growing number of people find themselves changing residences quite often, whether it's because they work remotely or because they're allergic to signing a conventional year-long lease. Whatever it is, moving often means shedding heavy pieces of furniture that aren't practical for this kind of nomadic lifestyle.
Taking cues from her own itinerant way of living, Argentinian architect and designer Natalia Geci designed Linko, a lightweight, modular approach that uses metal frames to create a reconfigurable system of furniture and storage.
Thanks to this simple system and its collection of add-on elements, the user can create impromptu, expandable storage, wardrobes, desks, washing stations, bookshelves, kitchens and even a kids' playhouse.
The powder-coated metal frames come in white, red, bronze, copper and silver, and in a variety of heights and widths, and can be connected with wooden slats made of cherry or oak, allowing the user to create an variety of forms that fit their lifestyle and current space. Storage pouches complete the system by providing convenient places to stash belongings, and are made out of canvas fabric, leather or felt.
Horizontal and vertical surfaces made out of wood, cork or mirrors can be added on, creating something more like a partition. Clip-on shelving can be tacked on to create space for books.
Made for easy transport from one place to another, Linko can be folded flat and packed away in its own durable bag, and quickly set up in the next location.
It's a clever design -- though we think it could be further stabilized with some kind of support at the bottom. In any case, it's a colorful, portable and endlessly transformable option for people with nomadic tendencies. More over at Design Milk and Natalia Geci.
