A modular storage system is reminiscent of the low-resolution aliens in the popular Space Invaders video game.

Invader consists of a series of maple wood and steel modules that fit into each other.


Says Bruun, "When using them separately, each module has a wonderful character to it and is somewhat a statement piece for your living room."


The focus is on maximum flexibility for the user. "Its modular flexibility, and construction on wheels creates a multiple of spatial solutions, and fills the need for both hidden and open storage."


"The light long-legged aesthetic makes us question gravity and strength of the wooden legs, but a metal core in the construction provides maximal strength and allows the clean and simple, almost rigorous character of the furniture to stand out."


There are three sizes and three basic functions for the stackable modules; drawer, cabinet, and surface. "A cabinet or drawer where we can hide the things that we do not want the world to see and a surface where we can stage the objects and stories we want the world to see."


"The piece is inspired by its users needs and ways of living."


"How we tell stories and stage our life and identity though our storage and collected objects. The project revolves around individual ways of living, collecting and creating what constitutes 'home'.
