Space-saving, fold-away furniture and Murphy beds aren’t for everyone, but if you live in a city like New York, London or Tokyo where even small apartments are insanely expensive – making the most of your space becomes an issue.
And the trends seem to be pointing more towards denser urban development in the future.
A friend pointed me to this YouTube video that shows what can happen when an Italian furniture designer, mechanical engineer and a hardware company collaborate. Resource Furniture of New York imports this multi-function “Space-saver” furniture line from Italian manufacturer – Clei.
This type of ingenuity always impresses and inspires me – and I don’t even want to know the prices. If you appreciate good engineering and efficient design, you’ll definitely want to watch this video a couple of times.
