co-cross: machine for living + working
Our proposal co-cross is an exploration in the future of work-live scenarios for young professionals wanting the flexibility and freedom of working from home.
‘co-cross’ stands for the emerging desire in the collaborative cross-pollination of life and work.
The design integrates the thinking behind novel theories in productivity and lifestyle.
MEAN* used different USM products to envision a modular unit shaped as a cross. Instead of rooms, the unit is separated with partitions.
The co-cross unit investigates the geometric use of ‘voxels’ (3D pixels) to achieve an added aesthetic ornamentation, which also serves the duality of lighting in the sleep area and seating-storage/ planting pods for the living area.
