Inspired by public scaffolding, this system composed of two modules allow for an easy assembly of a multi-functional architecture for apartments (max 3m height). It has been designed to have no screw, the user can mount the modules with a clever bayonet mount.

The two vertical modules are either of die-cast aluminium, or expanded metal sheet.
The floor is composed of laminated MDF, solid wood, or perforated steel. The walls are made of metal grid, laser cut steel, or soundproof textile panels.

In the expanded metal version, a lamp can be integrated, the light diffused through the grid.
