This question isn’t a new one. Sociologist Zygmunt BaumanLiquid Modernity, Liquid Life and Liquid Times lay out his definition of our current society:
“’Liquid life’ is a kind of life that tends to be lived in a liquid modern society. ‘Liquid modern’ is a society in which the conditions under which its members act change faster than it takes the ways of acting to consolidate into habits and routines. Liquidity of life and that of society feed and reinvigorate each other.
The evolutionary capacity of our living and working environments has become not only a trend or goal, but a functional necessity. It will help us make the most of these constant ruptures, and better handle change so that we can learn to just go along with it.
As experts in interior architectural systems, the folks at KLEIN® have spent years researching and developing tools that allow architects to make adaptable spaces a tangible possibility, and to make your project design a reality.
We reinvented partitions by turning them into transformers of space. We incorporated movement by adding high-tech sliding and folding systems to create fluid interior spaces that adapt to the user and to changes in their life, not the other way around.
Our goal is to guarantee the user a highly evolutionary environment, a source of balance and well-being that never ceases to be functional. Mobile partitions, telescopic glass architectural walls, and light-dispersing partitions become tools for creating changing spaces that are always comfortable and personalized. Spaces that create a sense of well-being, because they evolve alongside the needs of their dwellers
Glass, wood and metal: classic materials that are always changing, designed to organize rooms again and again, naturally and easily, as they are reinvented by their users.
