Can we keep something within a cloud? Can we take advantage of the most important characteristics of the material, namely lightness, and its relevant mechanic characteristic [which is not too good mechanical resilience and resistance] to take advantage of it and add functionality?
Developed within a postgraduate programme in Elisava with Storopack BCN as a collaborator, CLOUD NINE! Looks to discover new spaces within the home, and discover the ceiling back as a usable house element. Made with EPS and Polypropylene for the high bearing elements, CLOUD NINE! Puts a cloud and a dream at home, thus freeing the floor area and its use.
