Shanty is inspired in the patchwork of corrugated steel sheets which are used to construct many temporary or provisional homes, which exist in the whole world. Its beauty lies in imperfection. This spontaneous composition of superimposed surfaces in different colours is recreated with a wavy front. Its body has an assymetrical volume and each door opens differently.
Containers are manufactured of MDF in a matte lacquered finish. The containers are attached together using a mechanical fixing system. Doors are made of MDF with mechanised wave-form fronts, and matte lacquered finish. The glass top is 8mm thick and transparent. Octagonal Legs made of extruded anodised aluminum or painted in different colours. The structure is made of tubular iron with welded strips to assemble the legs.
