For those who live, eat, sleep, breathe their work, London- and Berlin-based architects Nilsson Pflugfelder have introduced Verbandkammer, a spaceship-like, customizable workspace / artist’s residence.
Verbandkammer has just about everything you need built into its multifunctional body. It does, however, take up significantly more room than your standard cubicle block. But it’s also much more interesting to look at!
Though Verbandkammer was built for display in Manifesta 9, as presented by FLACC Workplace For Visual Artists, there are plans in place for the unit’s future. As per Nilsson Pflugfelder:
Verbandkammer is designed to grow and shift with your needs, with the pieces fitting together like a giant puzzle.
“The Verbandkammer collapses cultural production, workplace, residency, archive, administration, and discursive spaces into one coherent, dense installation – a unified assembly consisting of disparate elements: 11 nos. types of frames, 10 nos. types of cladding, 40 nos. types of modules, 6 nos. programmatic entities and 1 no. Verbandkammer.”
An optional interior environment, the steps (right foreground) can be used as a means of entry, an informal meeting area, or even as a seat for a workspace.
Would you believe the inspiration for the shape was a piece of coal?
The storage options seem endless…
Would you enjoy a workspace like Verbandkammer?
