Today's public environments need to be agile and able to match a physical and mental metabolism of the day, in order to stay relevant. At +Halle, we are convinced that future of furniture lies in spaces that adapt to the behaviour of the people who use them, meaning that the design needs to achieve a synthesis of context, function and performance.
We are motivated by the transformation in the use of public space: how people relate to large shifts in work, mobility, technology and privacy. Driven by understanding how spatial cultures evolve, we are interested in the complex, diverse interplay between human behaviour, design and architecture.
It is time to think beyond the generic domestic influence on our public spaces, instead, we really should look at the actual needs and let purpose inform our environments.
