A furniture collection from Deka Furniture created for the increasingly mobile urban population living in smaller spaces.

trans-form-it is a new furniture collection from Deka Furniture in which each piece transforms from a box and back into a box without the use of tools. The collection includes a sofa, lounge chair, coffee table, credenza, dining table and chairs, buffet, bookcase/desk and a bed.

The collection has been designed in response to contemporary living arrangements, with consideration for mobility and smaller living spaces. It encourages a dialogue which questions our current expectations of furniture as functionally and aesthetically determinate, and provides unique solutions to sustainability concerns.

The collection uses sustainable resources – Australian hoop pine plywood and solid hoop pine with wool upholstery – and is manufactured in Brisbane. The concept is high-design with low-technology and minimal resource use, and promotes opportunities for local manufacture and customisation.

trans-form-it will be on display at the Deka pop-up shop on Grey Street in Brisbane and at the ‘Moving Cities’ collaboration at the State Library of Queensland as part of ["Unlimited: Designing for the Asia Pacific":http://unlimitedap.com/2010/06/trans-form-it/].
