STICKS is a system, which utilises the same raw material to create a wide range of transformative interior spaces, making it possible to designate area, apply function, and reinvigorate less desirable spaces.

What happens to a form when it is no longer performing its intended function? The fixation to design the perfect form to seamlessly execute a desired function is only successful so long as the functional demand is present. What happens when this demand ceases to exist? Does the form become useless? Art? Rubbish? New material?
Where does design go?
As the ecological consequences of the built world become more severe and apparent, it is increasingly relevant that the way we look at design must extend beyond form and function to include environment. That is to say, a consciousness of the full impact and lifespan of each material and byproduct of any given design.
STICKS seeks to highlight this idea through adaptable, functional spaces created with simple raw materials.
