Plug is a mobile modular piece 190x90 cm with several accessories designed and tailored to their anchoring system: "stick, table, chair, hung ..."

Inspired by traditional space partition screens, plug is a vertical serial parts lattice which, besides its obvious properties of transparency and glaze, are those that contain applications, serving as supports and anchorages for various accessories

This module works individually or in groups, adapting to any situation, shape or space.

Serial appearance of fine wooden slats makes the overall homogeneity from working properly, thus regulating protrusion or imperfections in occupied space.

Small one-time accessories are fitted sliding between the lattice. The unit or refill of these small parts generates all uses each user needs.

In this project for Altea have been used a total of 12 modules, adapting different groups to solve each of the needs we required: storage, jewelry exhibition, privacy, veiled, shop window and claim.
