Modos: DIY Custom Design

Furniture that evolves with you

 
Modos, the revolutionary tool free assembly system that allows anyone to build beautiful furniture in minutes. Today, Modos is launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund its eco-friendly, modular furniture system. Modos is ideal for the 40 million U.S. citizens that move each year and for those that want to update their current furnishings. 
 
 
Andrew Personette and Matt Tyson, Modos inventors, said that they came up with Modos as a result of identifying multiple pain points in the furniture industry. “We wanted to create high quality flat-pack furniture that is easy to assemble, ecologically sound, long-lasting, and most of all, reconfigurable. We’ve intentionally kept our design open so that people can experiment and get creative with what they make. Both the normal consumer and the DIY types have flexibility and options with our system.”
 
 
Benefits 
• Tool Free - No more missing allen wrenches and strained reltaionships. Furniture assembly is hassle free with our easy to use hardware connectors. Simply snug the connectors and boards together. 
• Made to Change - Whether you’re moving to a new place or think your shelf might be better suited as a coffee table, we’ve got you covered. Our furniture is easily reconfigurable to whatever suits your needs. Get creative. 
• High Durability - The solid birch and alder veneer cores result in superior strength and high structural integrity. Similarly, the anodized aluminum connectors allow for constant assembly and disassembly. 
• Eco-Friendly - All our wood is sustainably sourced and FSC-Certified to minimize environmental impact. In addition, straight rectilinear forms keep our waste very low, typically less than 5% (mostly sawdust). The flat pack nature of Modos makes shipping incredibly effective. At the end of the life of the product the wood components can be industrially composted and the connectors can simply be recycled with your municipal recycling service.
 
 
Modos features a sleek, compact set of aluminum connectors used in its design of the Y-Stool, Desk Stand, Shelf, and Glass Desk. Modos is a product of EcoSystems, a design and manufacturing firm founded by Personette and Tyson, specializing in streamlined manufacturing processes to produce a minimal amount of waste and a commitment to organic, non-toxic, certified sustainable materials. The green-minded company is partnered with New Lab, a cutting edge center that incubates and encourages a renaissance of new manufacturing in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Modos’ advisory board is supported by New Lab’s entrepreneurs, educators, and businesses in disciplines ranging from additive manufacturing, biotech, advanced robotics, architecture, and industrial design. Personette and Tyson said that they anticipate that people will utilize their innovative tool free assembly system to build something lasting and beautiful while saving time and energy to do more with their lives. 
 
 
Andrew and Matt may be one of the few successful relationships that started from a craigslist ad. Unsatisfied with living the freelancer life, Matt responded to a craigslist job posting that Andrew had put up, “You love design more than your pet. Your computer is your left hand. You dream of owning your own design firm. You are willing to commit at least 20 hrs per week to assisting in the celebration of life.” Thus, a great partnership, and friendship was born. Together Matt and Andrew have over 20 years of design and build experience, 10 of those being in the interiors and furniture industry. Past projects have ranged from anything between founding a conference focused on green design, to building a restaurant interior entirely out of reclaimed materials. All the while, they have stuck to a simple principle – to have a positive effect on the environment and society.
