“Maisonnette” in French means small house and the aim here has been to propose a collection of furnitures that meets the contemporary need of sharing functions in the microliving spaces.
Multifunctional furniture is more of a necessity than ever before, and a variety of designers are eager to make it their niche. Simonelli’s Maisonnette looks to be practical and portable but also contemporary and minimalist … which is a heady mix.
Simone Simonelli is another designer to add to the burgeoning list of designers tackling this problem of living space. The Italian designer’s solution is Maisonnette, a set of three pieces of furniture that between them are capable of being used for at least six different purposes.
It is a 3 pieces set: One of the pieces is a clothes stand/mini wardrobe, one is a trolley/storage unit, and one is a small table that becomes a tray when flipped over. All of them are constructed from iron rods and alder wood, which should make them sturdy but light enough to move easily.
Stand: 160x70x40 cm
Trolley: 100x50x50 cm
Tray/basket: 35x50x30 cm
