Triage

Smart Furniture for Healthy Habits

2020

Triage is a two piece furniture line that consists of a couch and a shelf. The furniture features LED lights and RFID technology that is controlled by a phone app. Routines and reminders are created in the app by the user and linked to an item. A RDIF tag is attached to the item so the furniture can identify and indicate its location to the user. The couch offers a closed storage solution with compartments in arm rests and under the cushions. The shelf offers an open storage solution with magnetic attachment points for a variety of accessories. The layout of the accessories and dividers can be customized to suit the needs of the user.

This was a collaborative project with another design student.

I fabricated these stools myself mainly using ash wood and bent baltic birch plywood.

Below are a few photos of the process.
