Your own home can become a microcosm of continuous metamorphosis, depending on the people who live there or who simply visit. This innovative proposal has actually been developed by the “Stüda” project, which was realised by Studio Nine for the Moow company in Sora, whose objective is to go beyond the idea of static furniture. Nine is a studio in Frosinone, founded in 2015 by the architects Paolo Emilio Bellisario and Matteo Di Sora. Each has a daughter called Nina, a coincidence that was the source of the studio’s registered name. The interior designer Emilia Caffo, and other professionals work alongside them, in the fields of architecture, design and graphics. Mindful of their previous experience with Noumena and ZO-Loft -collectives specialized in public projects that surveyed the social relationship between man and the environment - the founders of Studio Nine implemented the idea of “space transformability”, which is part of town planning logic, on interior design. “Stüda” is a modular system made from textured Corian with LEGOcompatible studs. So, on a fine piece of white Corian, AFOLs (Adult Fans of Lego) can express their own creativity by moving the blocks of various sizes and colours around, and by playing with their children to furnish the family ‘nest’ on a daily basis. Younger couples can amuse themselves with friends by altering the furniture with infinite, free-standing or wall-mounted combinations, or even making pictures or other images through the use of specific apps, such as LEGO Photo. Already exhibited at national and international fairs, the “Stüda” project has been shown at the Ironically Iconic event in Milan, where the artist Riccardo Garolla, altered the exhibited furniture each day by changing the mix of bricks, in a sort of “continuous happening”.
