This fact influenced the lives of generations and it brings meaning which is ever changing according to individual stories of every one of us. For many people prefabs are a symbol of involuntary housing in social conditions that bring specific qualities connected with this fact. What fascinates author is the contrast between the functional, modernistic and unified concept of the same type of flats in many countries as opposed to the many stories of the people living in them, that are all different.
The collection consists from dresser with three drawers, movable table, and wall lamp. The lamp simulates night view to prefab house with lights in windows that are irregularly lighting up and go out in time.
