Project Concept Statement
The Industrial Revolution introduced new materials, techniques and forms to architecture, interiors, and furnishings. It fostered novelty, innovation, and alteration. Furniture became more diverse in function, type, and selection. The Transformer bar cart was designed with all these concepts in mind. Materials used are salvaged rods, scrap metal trimmings, plexiglass, LEDs and an award-winning product from Aspecta. The flexibility to use the Transformer as a bar cart with LED accent lighting or as a sleek shelving unit is sure to be the highlight of any entertainment space.
