Freeform, designed by a designer based in Liverpool, UK, Dan Hoolahan, is a playful and multifunctional furniture range which can be adapted to the users needs. Screw threads cut into the ash and maple components enable quick and easy construction with no tools and the ability to take varying functions providing seating, tables or shelving. Let us take a look at his fantastic design and be inspired. Hope you enjoy!
Inspired by the lifestyles of people on the move, living in rented accommodation and settling much later in life, Freeform can be constructed and reconstructed to form a range of different furniture pieces for permanent or temporary use. The simple assembly and disassembly allows for ease of transportation and construction takes minutes with no tools required. Each Freeform unit can be combined with another to meet individual needs. Similarly, Freeform can be used as children’s furniture, growing as they do.

As an alternative to buying cheap, low quality furniture intended for short term use, Freeform is designed to be used and reused. With its simple components being combined to take on new forms and functions as needed, the product life cycle is extended. This approach aims to encourage a more sustainable lifestyle and reduce waste. Freeform is designed and handmade in the UK.
