A Partition Design

Many families today are physically bound together but in reality, they are isolated from one another. Everyone lives their life independently with minimal family interaction. The children focus on studying and playing computer games, whereas adults go out for work. This furniture design provides a personal space while allowing interaction between people at the same time. 'Segregated Connectedness' means:

" Together but apart"

" There but not there "

" Present but absent ".
