our journey

Bcompact 
beginnings

 

Our passion for compact living was born out of necessity. Whilst living in New York City for several years; in high-priced & cramped conditions. Bcompact founder, Zev Bianchi, realised that there was a real need to give people a choice to create the best possible living environment in the least amount of space.

He then enrolled in the Furniture Design & Construction courses at Parsons School of Design, NYC, to further develop his skills and knowledge.

Returning to Australia in 2002, Zev took his studies further at the Sydney Design Institute to become an Industrial Designer, working in the design industry as a freelancer, before starting his own practice  – Bcompact – in 2012.

Throughout my career, I've considered the age old question: Form or Function? And I've discovered that you cannot have either, without having both.

This is a great innovation that solves a clear problem in a very elegant and clever way. The folding mechanism is pure genius and functions with ease. The Jury applauds this kind of thinking. Well done.
