Compact City Furniture Module

In a 350 S.F. Manhattan apartment, it is critical to maximize efficiency and storage when designing furniture.  Based on the IKEA mentality of a kit of parts, a single piece of furniture was conceived which includes a bookshelf, entertainment unit and work station.  A separate coffee table was also developed.  The furniture was designed using computer software as a tool and then milled in a CNC woodshop in Brooklyn. To minimize noise during assembly, 95% of the unit was designed to interlock using friction joints to hold the parts together.  In the end, 15 screws were required in the assembly.
