About this project

About. GO is an easy-to-assemble, tool-free, modular furniture system that adapts to your needs and space.

Function. GO is a versatile shape-shifter: a toy, a climber, a chair, a basket, a table, a step stool, and much more. Its purpose and design grow with your desires and imagination. Your desires and imagination grow with its open-ended purpose and design.

How it works. GO consists of two perforated beech plywood side boards and an optional number of connecting wooden sticks and boards. It is simple to assemble, disassemble, and re-configure. Changing the position of only one element can entirely transform its functionality.

Why it works. GO was designed to evolve with you through time and space. It is a life-long companion that you can use in different stages of life, as a child, an adult, or a senior. It is also a portable piece of space, as GO adapts to any place, in any guise – it eliminates the need for extra furniture.

Durability. GO is made in Slovenia by local craftsmen, from locally harvested wood and in accordance with EU standards for children’s furniture: all the edges are rounded and we use certified natural oils. GO is sustainable, durable and easy to maintain.

About SESTAVI. SESTAVI is the Slovene word for "systems", but it can also be read as "Assemble!" or "Build!", and this is what we are focused on: furniture systems that you can assemble on your own in different configurations. One word with several meanings, one piece of furniture for many functions.   

The creator of GO and the man behind SESTAVI is Miha Jenko, an architect with 15 years of experience. Throughout his career he has been in pursuit of the utopian multi-functional object, with GO being just one of its many possible incarnations.  

Following the tradition of modernist design, SESTAVI is inspired by the idea that by building and transforming the object the user will learn more about its form and purpose. Apart from being functional, GO therefore serves as a learning ground for kids and adults alike.  

We need your support to start the production of GO and to bring to life many others like it.

REWARDS

 

Risks and challenges

The final prototype for GO has been extensively tested. All the necessary arrangements have been finalized, and manufacturers are ready to start production.

The plywood side boards will be made by a CNC router, while wooden sticks with wooden screws will be crafted by hand by an experienced woodturner. Because of this the production of sticks and screws is time consuming, but four months should suffice even for bigger orders.

In any case, you will be regularly updated and informed of any eventual problems or changes that might impact the final product or delivery.
