Variable Design

Extremely adaptable products offer endless options to appease fickle tastes

Implications - Last year, we saw the rise of adaptable furniture, convertible fashions and modular office spaces. Appealing to the consumer who requires changeability in everything he does, this design direction has grown to tremendous proportions, affecting almost every product category. Now, everything from convertible boats and bathtubs to changeable kitchens and even houses are available. Thus, the number of adaptable and versatile products seems limitless in this era of consistently changing tastes and preferences.
