“We wanted to broaden our perspective, to employ a design language that is relevant beyond North America. The economic shift of recent years has led to a new appreciation of design that is less fussy, more clear and purposeful,” says Richard Heriford of Landscape Forms.

However, the design team also wanted to inject a sense of local identity into the system. One solution was to make it flexible so that the seven system elements could be configured to suit local tastes and uses.

The second solution was to source local materials. So structural elements, including the aluminium frames and brackets, would come as standard mass-produced parts, while other elements, such as the seating and table surfaces, could be specified in local hardwoods.

“MultipliCITY allows for local materials and local taste to be expressed in the furniture, giving architects the ability to make it unique every time, while lowering shipping and carbon costs,” says Yves Behar, founder of Fuseproject.
