Peru: Furniture
                           

 

When I contacted Miguel to do a project, he mentioned that he had been thinking of renovating a rooftop space into a guest bedroom, and that a collaboration might be possible (Miguel was an established interior and furniture designer).

Inspired by the grid-like qualities of the neighbourhood and surrounding homes, I suggested building a modular furniture unit for the room, something Miguel met with enthusiasm. We brainstormed which pieces of furniture were necessary for the guest bedroom, keeping in mind the often transient nature of the guest. As we were both well versed in these matters, we decided that a small table for laptop use was necessary and that several racks upon which to hang well-worn clothes would improve the comfort of a weary traveller. Six stools were constructed to encourage social events upon the roof, a space that Miguel had been seeking to activate for quite some time. And so, one week later, the guest bedroom was equipped with a desk, shelving, six stools, and clothing racks.
