elastic_LIVING® , developed and patented by the Austrian architect Angelo Roventa, is a new housing concept that is both future-oriented and in step with the spirit of our time.
“I tried to incorporate the philosophical aspects of time and seriality into spatial planning, and realize them in architecture,” says Roventa, “…a man cannot be in two places at the same time. We also have different needs in different phases of our life.”
Sliding built-in furniture modules allow different rooms to be created by dwellers at the turn of a wheel or the flick of a switch. Modules can be separated or bunched together in different combinations, allowing certain functional spaces to be opened up in-between while closing others. Living space is “moved” to where it is needed at any given moment, hence the name.
