XL: T.I.M (aka. Cross Lifestyle: Technologically Interfaced Module) studies in modern social interaction with furniture. With the craftsmanship of industrial revolution given a back seat to mass production and mass availability our culture has adapted and accepted mass production because of our demands relegated by technological advances: we want everything faster, easier and more efficient.
The goal of XL-T.I.M. is to question the hybridization our “bigger, faster, stronger” culture with craftsmanship, giving the user everything they need from the time they open the door to when they sleep and night, all in one integral piece of furniture.
