Front designs Tetris storage system made of stacking blocks
Stockholm 2014: Swedish design studio Front has launched a modular storage system called Tetris that's made up of stacked blocks (+ slideshow).
The product is named after the puzzle video game where the aim is to rotate and shift falling blocks of different shapes and sizes so they slot together.
Front's system for Swedish brand Horreds can be layered in different configurations to allow the user to create their own piece of furniture.
The modules are available in two different sizes, one square and one rectangular, of varying depths. They can be wall-mounted or piled on top of each other in any quantity and orientation to form furniture or room dividers.
By leaving the block as an open box it becomes a bookcase, glass doors create a display cabinet or solid doors create a cupboard.
"Everything from large, convenient devices for the office to small and fun furniture for your home can be created," said Front. "You just have to mix and build!"
The customer can choose materials such as wood, felt, copper, leather, brass and steel. Each block can be a different material and colour or the whole can be coordinated.
Details such as steel legs and leather handles can be added to further personalise the design.
Tetris was launched during Stockholm Design Week, which took place last week. Front also presented spherical glass lamps that appear to be steamed up.
