Our homes are not static.
Rather, they are a moving set of objects that we are constanly reconfiguring to accommodate our changing needs. We naturally look to our environment and see possibilities. Whether it’s using a chair as a side table or the couch as a bed to offer a friend in town.
That's why we belive furniture should be allowed to hold many identies. Using a unified rail system Loose Parts embodies a “Yes, and” attitude. In other words, yes, your furniture can be a table and it can be a shelf.
Loose Parts is a modular furniture system hand-crafted by Jennifer June. It was born out of the belief that humans are natural builders and inspired by adhoc furniture assemblies found on the streets of New York.
It is our mission to design sustainable and creative opportunities for people to engage with their interiors and the objects that fill their lives. With the goal of ultimately reducing furniture landfill waste, encouraging reuse, and inspiring individual acts of agency.
Theory of Loose Parts by Simon Nicholson, 1971
“In any environment, both the degree of inventiveness and creativity, and the possibility of discovery, are directly proportional to the number and kind of variables in it”
with the desire to connect people more deeply to their environment. Raised in a bilingual household, June’s childhood was split between Costa Rica and Southern California. She understood early on that homes are not bound by four walls - they are a continuous adaptive reflection of people, culture and values.
Her designs build upon the observation: homes happen not through perfection, but out of participation.
