Social Furniture – SF is a social design project by EOOS in the framework of the “Places for People” project, the Austrian contribution to the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. Social Furniture consists of 18 furniture designs intended for a collective self-building process. The distinctive furniture made out of yellow shuttering panels form places for collective activities: living, cooking, working.
Beyond its function in refugee aid projects, the collection exemplifies social furniture as a concern of society as a whole and can be applied at different scales and in response to various needs. All designs are easy to assemble with a circular saw and power drill, either as individual pieces or mass produced, depending on the context.
