Lift-Bit


2016

Designed by Carlo Ratti Associati with the support of Vitra and presented during the “ROOMS.Novel living concepts” exhibition organized by Salone del Mobile.Milano within the framework of the XXI Triennale, Lift-Bit consists in a modular, reconfigurable upholstered seat which employs Internet-of-Things (IoT) technologies to radically define a new living experience. The prototype of Lift-Bit stems from the combination of a series of single, hexagonal stools. Each of them is motorized using a linear actuator which allows every element to be raised or lowered.

 

Controlled remotely through a tablet app, each stool can double (or halve) its height in just a few seconds, reconfiguring the space in a myriad of combinations. Paying homage to Cedric Price’s 1978 “Generator Project,” Lift-Bit’s responsive modules can seamlessly transform into a sofa, a bed, an ordered living room, a small auditorium or a domestic landscape, according to the user’s needs and wishes.
