While designing this furniture, it has been paid attention that it is suitable for land plastic, contemporary, sustainable, multifunctional, aesthetic, innovative, applicable, capable of meeting the needs of the future and intended for all campus users. With these characteristics, furniture elements are sustainable because they can produce the energy they need. 4 of 6 designed furniture were selected and 1/5, 1/10 and 1/20 scale models were made.
