The student took the end-of-life phase of his design nio to the smallest detail into consideration. In the first place, materials with an as low as possible environmental impact have been selected.
In order to achieve the recycling of these materials a demountable building was conceived. Usual fixing methods such as staples, glue and zippers were abandoned. The result is a piece of furniture that can be seperated up to 7 material fractions in 8 minutes! To ensure closing the cycles a business model has been developed for readmission.
nio is modular and can grow with the family by purchasing additional components, but can also adapt to the daily needs of the family, since one can change the seat. manually
