A furniture design idea called "the living cube" despite being a rectangle...created by Till Koenneker.
The great thing about it? Very compact and transportable.
We know that moving is never fun: boxes, cases and so much clutter to shift from our place to the other.
In this particular case, it is all in one.
In some cities, old industrial workshops/warehouses have been restored and transformed into posh little lofts. An empty space where you can just setup your own "home sweet home" by moving partitions as you wish. You are getting in fact, an empty shell but with the freedom to organise your floor plan with no real limit. In other words, it will maximize your living space.
The Living Cube will ease that task. Bring it in and you are sorted in no time. Your living area will be comfortable and what's left over around it will accommodate a communal area to receive guests or get your office or music lounge.
Folding and modular units are the way forward especially during this economic struggle where everything is more and more expensive, but wages aren't actually adjusted and interest rates are close to nothing.
People are just surviving by constantly checking their revenue and monthly bills. There is no room for spending without thinking twice. Food, public transport, water, electricity and council taxes are just draining us and if you have a car, the petrol price is another situation.
What can we expect from the years to come?
Having a decent lifestyle is from the past. Buying what you need rather than what you want is becoming a rule. However, marketing campaigns are making us believe that we must buy such or such product because far better than the previous...but of course there is a catch...the price to pay to get that novelty.
Often, when moving in a new flat/house, you want to do some improvements to make it more personal and give that special touch. It can involve DIY or going to the closest superstore to purchase some home accessories. Usually, an exciting time to search and eventually find that unique piece of decoration which will change the feel of your interior design.
But do we actual buy too much irrelevant items?
Just sit down and look around you? Of course, it is not about having empty shelves, but sometimes a room looks better with less bibelot.
