Endoskeletons is a project by designer Alon Meron where all the furniture in a room is connected together.
The project seeks to apply an internal skeleton to the domestic environment, arranging elements of the living space around a frame rather than within a container.
See an earlier prototype and sketch model from the project our previous story.
The following text is from Meron:
Endoskeletons and Exoskeletons
Our own bodies are supported by an internal skeleton and yet our notion of shelter and safety is often manifested in the word 'shell'.
Comfort and containment are linked in our minds and our houses show that; they are shells and our daily life is arranged inside their rigid structure, flowing from one room to the other.
When you move into a new house you put your things in their place and in doing so you draw the map by which you will live.
I have applied the structural principle of a skeleton to the domestic environment. The space is now drawn around the function rather than containing it.
Different elements of the house can now be coupled; I can have my library in the toilet and my lounge outside.
The living house becomes an extension of my limbs rather than a series of containers for my life.
