HEX — 2016
Inspired by modularity, Hex is a set of geometric bases that can be brought together or apart to form different pieces of furniture. With their hexagonal shape, the pieces can be tessellated to create large surface areas.
The intention behind Hex is to take advantage of modular furniture's ability not only to serve multiple functions but also to accommodate for various situations. Rather than create one piece that could transform into multiple forms, we created multiple pieces that could more fluidly fit around the framework of each situation, whether that be one person working alone, two people connecting to each other, or simply a set of objects resting.
Each component of Hex is made of a frame of 3/4" poplar plywood. All top and bottom surface area hexagons are 6" x 6". The work was a collaboration between Jeremy Joachim and Prachi Jain.
