The development of modern technology has enabled the emergence of so-called “urban nomads”, mainly young professionals, who have adopted the modern concept of fluidity in your lifestyle.
For them, the flexibility of a standard that applies to many aspects of life, mostly relating to the place of work and residence.
Now, more than ever before, place of residence is considered to be less durable and more flexible home with variable configuration, in order to quickly and easily respond to current requirements and needs of the owner in a certain stage of life.
“Nomadism” becomes noticeable and in terms of the home: home dimensions become smaller especially in big cities, function rooms overlap, which results in the more frequent relocation of furniture and accessories and adapt to current needs.
Furniture and other household items are no longer tied to a specific space or room in the house but become part of the flexible configuration of home. Both living room becomes temporarily study or guest room or work if necessary “moves” in the bedroom.
Designers, therefore, take into account the needs of modern life and create furniture and household items that are easy to move, dismantle and adapting to the needs, small spaces or changing all at home.
