The original tiny home…perhaps.
Four rooms in one
With the ingenious Matroshka Furniture you get four rooms in one as the living room, bedroom, study and dining room are all neatly compacted into 15 square metres. There’s even plenty of storage space. The design is inspired by the Russian Matroshka wooden dolls that hide inside each other.
Multi-purpose rooms, great design.
Artist Adam Frank’s light creations have a wonderful mystical quality about them. His Lumen Flames are a series of acid-etched, stainless steel, oil lamp shadow projectors that casts an enchanting shadow from a tiny, stainless motive. The Pine motive is also available with a specialized LED in place of the flame. Price: $48/$60
Reveal is a new type of ambient interior lighting. This small projector implies the presence of a real window by simulating sunlight entering through an imaginary window.
Price: $280. Adam Frank will be exhibiting at BKLYN DESIGN next month.

Light never looked so good
Great variation on tiny house
Ludovico Office created by Claudio Sibille is a cabinet with a hidden chair and a foldable table. The cabinet itself has three drawers and a room just above the top drawers and the ceiling used for storing laptops, books, or anything you can think of. This furniture can be easily transported anywhere thanks to it’s four wheels.
Claudio Sibille won in 2012 the Golden A’ for Ludovico Office.
I want this built so badly! I want this built for me!!!!
Other options in the furniture front
Double loft plus stairs. The top stair detail is especially cool.
