This is a "converted" space in the old town of Altea that uses the organizational system developed by Ji, known as MODULE PLUG: a versatile, mobile lattice into which various accessories are "plugged." This structure organizes the space to create four zones: architectural, jewelry workshop, showroom, and art gallery.
The MODULE PLUG concept stems from the investigation into versatile spaces in which an activity takes place for a short or long period of time; this activity, whether domestic or commercial, is always linked to a long list of functional and aesthetic necessities.
PLUG is a mobile, modular piece measuring 190x90 centimeters, with several accessories designed and tailored to the anchoring system: stick, table, chair, hook, etc.
Inspired by traditional space partition screens, PLUG is a vertical lattice in serial parts. Besides its obvious properties of transparency and glaze, PLUG also contains supports and anchorages for the various accessories. This module works individually or in groups, adapting to any situation, shape or space.
The serial appearance of fine wooden slats creates an overall homogeneity in the work space, regulating protrusions or imperfections.
Small one-time accessories can be slid between the lattice slats. In this project, for Altea, Ji used a total of 12 modules, combining them to fulfill the needs of the space: storage, jewelry exhibition, private area, shop window, etc.
