With tiny-home living and micro-apartments still trending, both established and fledgling product designers have been exploring how best to furnish these tight environments. Several months ago, for instance, Yves Béhar launched his moving multifunctional wall system Ori. Now there’s a new concept that, instead of a moving and transforming wall, proposes a self-contained system akin to a loft bed.
Cleverly named Kammerspiel (German for “intimate theater”) and designed by Nils Holger Moormann, the system condenses into 441 square feet and comprises various features including a sleeping area up top (accessed via storage-integrated steps), a walk-in wardrobe inside and customizable external module designs depending on the dweller’s needs. These can be: a reading nook with bookshelves and seating, a workspace with a drop-down desk, a bike-storage wall and a dining space with built-in kitchen shelves. Meanwhile, the designer optimized the interior storage with a clothes rail, shelves and compartments.
Like Moormann’s other furniture pieces, Kammerspiel is realized in birch plywood with a black phenol-resin face, making it a clean, minimal and stylish design.
Although this was a prototype of the concept built for B&O Group — a leading technical service provider for the housing sector in Germany — at press time we’re told that it’s also available for custom orders now.
