Even Your Sofa Can Now Be Connected To The Internet of Things
This system makes it easy to build virtually any furniture piece
While furniture designers continue to get creative with their designs and the integration of technology, one system wants to put the creativity and control in the hands of the user.
Created by Carlo Ratti Associati, in collaboration with Vitra, the Lift-Bit furniture system lets users create their own designs with a smartphone app that controls each piece.
A video explains the technology behind the Lift-Bit, a unit that can be quickly assembled and adjusted with a group of other pieces to create a range of furniture piece. Users can group pieces together and adjust the height to create everything from a bed to a sofa.
