Flatpack Obsession

The design aesthetic expands beyond just furniture for minimalistic living

Implications - Traditionally a design method to aid in shipping, flatpack has evolved from being a utilitarian practice to design inspiration that speaks to the space cramped consumer. Influencing multiple areas of design, the aesthetic satisfies a novel consumer appeal to build and break down goods, but also to fit more into tight spaces for enhanced efficiency and the ability to have additional room for more products.
