Architects originally focused on modern design as an integrated project that included dealing with indoor space, furniture and objects. One of its main aims was to attend to the demands of the new way of life by providing innovative and functional solutions in order to renew ambiences. The influence of hygienism and its requitements, comfort and commodity for users marked the ergonomic nature of the results.

The relationship that was established between modern design and industry, owing to the use of new materials and techniques, led to the emergence of companies specialised in the manufacture of specific objects that renewed traditional criteria. Today, many of those designs are still present, appearing in our catalogues now as cultural icons.

The topic allows for reflection on how indoor space was renewed in the widest sense, the different contexts in which this took place and the people behind it. It also asks about the different project-related or corresponding poetic strategies.
