Though much attention has been given to the prefabrication of architecture, little has been devoted to the discussion of the prefabricated interior environment. The significance of the unit or module is inherent in the prefabrication of architecture, but it is equally critical in its role in the prefabrication of Interior Space. The element of the module in furniture transcends the notion of furniture as object, placing it more expansively into the realm of place-maker. The advent and purpose of modular furniture are not only interconnected with the greater concepts of prefabrication in the built environment but are also inherently interconnected with the development of the modern house. The ability to mass-produce furniture and the concept of the module as a generative place-maker transformed the role of modular furniture into that of defining space or prefabricating environments.
