the Drop series

Family of sheltering structures based on domestic activities. They aim to bring intimacy, privacy and concentration.

the dining structure gathers people around the table thanks to its concentric and rounded shape: it transforms the ritual of dining into a more intimate moment.

When night comes, the drop enlightens to create a poetic atmosphere. It adapts quite well to public places such as restaurants.

This working drop is based on ergonomics, according to the space the body needs when working: the result is an oval shape. It is particularly efficient in open spaces, to be encapsulated, cut off from the outside sounds and other disturbances.

the sleeping Drop is adopting the shape of a standard mattress: it is a cocoon, creating another layer, between the bed and the house’s walls.
