Description: 

Arcadia Design envisions a design that changes as its owner does.

It produces a modular and circular furniture system based on a design-for-reuse structure with patent pendant wich grants stability with less material and is easy to be assembled/disassembled. Modularity as a choice to stimulate reuse, transformation, customisation and imagination.

It also manufactures chairs and tables for children already commercialised that can become a toy for children, a photoframe for the family, an armchair for young people and much more.
