Cverha has a penchant for flexibility [5]; his TOTO [6] twin lamps, for example, have heads that rotate to create various levels of light. One can also see his obsession with customizable products in his AERO [7] Unisex Slippers that have an exchangeable top and bottom so you can create a individualized combination of colors each time you step into them.

As a product designer who values interaction from his end-users, it is no wonder that interaction is built it into his design for MONOHEDRON. Being able to change the level of shelter [8], it is a design that could adapt to almost every climate, from a hot desert that needs shade to a cold dark climate that craves daylight.

While the innovation behind the shape and adaptability of the prefab home [9] is striking, the actual details of how these homes would work in real-life settings remains a mystery.
