Space-Product ModulART / Cuba / 2014.
The installation ModulART meets the needs and way of living in a small space. “The essential” is the concept behind the aesthetic choices. It is a “sculpture” made up of simple surfaces and forms, and primary colours.
While the installation can be perceived as a standardised solution, the way in which it covers “the essential” is also related to its flexibility. It can be adapted to the user’s space and preferences by adding new materials, elements or new finishing techniques.
ModulART optimises interior spaces. It grew out of the wish to create a product that can improve the situation of housing in Old Havana. But products that grow out of difficult
conditions are often smart. ModulART can travel the whole country and to other parts of the world.
ModulART is planned to meet challenges of our time – the way in which we distribute housing.
This project results from thorough analysis and studies of some residential areas in The Old Havana, which are distinguished both by standardisation and small dimensions.
16 m² is enough for installing ModulART.
The initial ideas behind ModulART were developed in Europe, with the theoretical principles, concepts, and material resources available at The Art and Design Faculty of Bauhaus Universität Weimar in 2002.
