The Bondo Sofa from Harri Korhonen, for the Finnish-based furniture design company, INNO, gets its name from a tribe in India who struggle to preserve their identity and lifestyle. The interchangeable nature of the series, allows the user the ability to express their identity, as well as referencing connection. The units can be combined in multiple set ups and joined together, or placed as individual seats. Simple and functional always works.

Implications - Due to the economic times of unrest that many consumers have faced in recent years, products that are interchangeable have grown in popularity. When products can be altered in order to change their appearance or purpose, consumers are more likely to invest in them as they won't grow tiresome.
