RUUMY

MULTIFUNCTIONAL MODULAR TEXTILE PIECES THAT CAN BE COMBINED TO FORM ROOM DIVIDERS, HOME DECOR PANELS, CABINETS OR EVEN GARMENTS

The project

Ruumy is a range of modular furniture with a design that can be combined to form room dividers, home decor panels, cabinets or even garments, and allows fast and easy packing. The design allows the wardrobe to transform into a garment, a bag or home decor. Carefully made of soft material, Ruumy is a modular cabinet in the shape of a puzzle with up to 10 highly functional end uses. The first aim is to help frequent movers to keep and easily transport some of their furniture.

STORYTELLING

THE IDEA:

Twill. Case condition. Time. 

Three friends, two boys and one girl or maybe two girls and a boy or a transgender and two franciscan monks forgotten by time. Three chic nomads of modern and rich times. One luxury hiding. An apartment, open-space, rented. Unable to intervene in. Inside unframed, unpartitioned, impossible to be shared by built. Maybe a monument space, protected by law, but not by what you feel. The three need to define spaces, boundaries, existing together, protections together and clothes together. A permanently rich but constraining open-space. The three pay two RUUMY. You define by two membranes and an openspace that home. A home by volume and coat, through the membrane and the veil: a wall-vesmant, a non-material textile material, a loose fold comprising three bodies.

Social movements, the trends studied, the people around, the wishes/demands of my costumers, the very rapid advancement of the technology, all this makes me ask myself: <<How would it be if the wall of my room would also serve as a dressing? What if the dressing would become my coat?>> These questions leading to <<How would it be if I ‘dress’ my wall?>> 

We can see that the contemporary lifestyle becomes faster, we are often  forced to move our homes, sometimes due to our jobs. We can also see that a new current is emerging , “digital nomads”, and it involves people who choose to leave their office and start working online while travelling. The problem in these lifestyles is the fact that we own many things (like heavy furniture, clothes, handbags, bags) that keep us from a fast and compact packing of the wardrobe. Also, owning proprieties everywhere we travel isn’t a solution either, and packing and keeping what you have in a storage site requires plenty of money and time.

THE BIRTH OF THE PROJECT:

Ruumy is a concept that has started from the essence of basic things,  and studies the functions / verbs of “keeping and harnessing”, functions that if interfered with other external elements can be transformed. Technology advances very fast, and makes me think if there are any clothes in the future? Or well-targeted products / objects? If there were only pieces / shapes that, if I compose them, transform them into what I need according to the situation of the moment? “

THE CREATIVE PROCESS:

The project has the name RUUMY, a three-word name: room, roomies, and remy (rummy).  Words that explain very well the three major valences of this project: architectural design / utilitarian design, the affectionate and community part around an object that manifests both in physical space and online by creating a community co-design platform , with the possibility to create a “new media” through this concept, and remy from playful, modulated, creative and direct invitation to “co-creation” in this project.

Ruumy it’s a new complex socio-economic-cultural equation, which contains objects, people, compositional links and communication nodes; through them a simple product can connect differently to a network of possibilities, expectations and rules imagined by people who decide to be part of the Ruumy NetWorking Community.

THE COLLABORATION:

“A globally sustainable product,” which lives through that collaborative work without limits, which can be manifested by the new type of resource management. This extends the life of the product, virtually unlimited in terms of circulation and utility, through this global “share” supported by the sharing of pieces to RUUMY members, on the principle “It’s old for you, it’s new to me!”c conferences.

THE FUTURE:

We are a team of 2 architects and a fashion designer, and together with you, we believe that the Ruumy concept can develop into a global viral product, which has the power to change the mentality of consumerism.

THE MESSAGE:

This project was a collective work. Every piece of it was thought and designed all together. What makes this project special is that the three designers caring about the wellbeing of our children put their collective creative power into a project.
