Acting as an replacements to old shelving units and coat racks, the Huron cubbies design is aims to be a functional yet contemporary utility. The structure utilizes a diagrid system with a regular order of rows and columns.
These cells have been stretched and distorted using parametric software and have further been tested on grounds of utility, fabrication and assembly. Resembling a honeycomb, each cell of the assembly is numbered at both digital and physical scales to create an easy identification system for students, teachers and parents alike.
Used as temporary storage, the cubbies are placed at the entrance of the school and hence in addition to their primary function, they also act as showpieces to showcase the schools character.
Catering to the entire flux of patrons with and a array of mismatched objects, the dynamic nature of the piece adds dimensions which turns an otherwise everyday object into a welcome sight and instills curiosity for design in the students.
