About Design: What is Modular Furniture?

Modular design is a design method that divides and designs a series of function modules based on functional analysis of products with different functions or different specifications. Through selecting and combining the modules, different products can be constituted to meet the different needs of the market. The modular design may be a modern concept, however, its application has been around for a long time. Ancient human uses modular design to created bricks and stones of different sizes to build houses, temples, amphitheaters, castles, and so on.

The application of modular design in industry production began with the construction of automobiles. In the 20th century, Henry Ford designed the Ford Model T. Unlike previous ones, the Model T was designed to be broken down into different modules for standardized assembly line production, which allowed it to be sold in different markets around the world and made it easier to replace parts in the event of damage.

The concept of modular furniture emerged in 1926. Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky, an architect, created the prototype of the modern kitchen we recognize today. It is available in different sizes depending on the needs of the occupants that can be singles, couples, and families with children. Modular furniture was originally intended to facilitate kitchen work, but it has many other advantages.

  • Free combination according to personal needs and aesthetics.
  • The decoration budget is more transparent, avoiding extra expenses.
  • Save time for a design consultation and material purchase.
  • The construction cycle is shortened, and the construction process is more standardized.
