There is a theory that the micro mini skirt was an economic invention in response to financially lean times. Micro mini spaces, the prevailing challenge to interior designers of our day, are the current economic solution to a shortage of space in increasingly small urban dwellings. But, really, are they as sexy?
North American space-saving furniture retailer Resource Furniture teamed up with Brooklyn’s multidisciplinary design studio Think Fabricate to create a hospitality oriented, high-end furniture suite — all metallic-finished oak, hand-rubbed walnut, and lacquer — to express the magical (as in, now you see it, now you don’t) potential of even an absurdly small space.
Everything you need is hidden in here.
Called Kinetic, the three-piece collection debuted at this year's Dwell on Design New York, and comprises a coffee table, credenza, and wall-mounted cabinets each with something to hide, because space efficiency today requires multi-function. The Lift coffee table features hidden storage spaces for our modern companions, namely the laptop and the remote, scaled so that it can double as a workstation. Because the wall-mounted cabinet Hide & Seek is modular, it can be modified to store a variety of amenities, from the ironing station to the Nespresso. And that credenza, Slide? That’s where they hid the mini bar.
