Ferpect: Dune

Designed as a series of interchangeable and easily transportable modules, this street furniture system invites ownership, appropriation and lounging.

Dune is a street furniture system designed by Ferpect collective for Forme Publique , the 1st Biennale of Urban Furniture Design organized by Defacto in La Défense, Paris. With Dune , Ferpect sought to created a microarchitecture whose possibilities of use change depending on the climate. The frontside offers a 20° slope of acacia wood promoting relaxation in the sun, and the backside displays a frame of retified pine slats that bring shelter from winds or sun.

Fixed on the Dune , a variety of functional furnitures complement the system: tables, shelves and benches. Therefore, each dune is able to form a proper configuration and reveal its particular function: checking a document out of the wind, a lunch with colleagues, basking in the sun. The empty slopes invite appropriation, nonchalance, or lounging.

Designed on a principle of interchangeable and easily transportable modules, Dune can be assembled into a larger island or adapted to the neighborhood's activity. The low and vibrating geography of this modular furniture will insert discreetly into the landscape, leaving the horizon open. Dune is an eco-friendly project with simple and scalable ergonomics, radically open to ownership.
