The piece of folding furniture we present you today was spotted on kaustralia.com and it was designed by Japanese company Atelier OPA. The series of mobile furniture named Kenchikukagu were designed for work, sleep and eating. With highly effective designs like a mobile work station, a mobile bed and a mobile kitchen thrown in, the series allows apartment dwellers to cramp in all the essential furniture necessary for urban living, without compromising on form or functionality.” – DesignRulz.

Another great idea for tucking a lot of function into a small space.
“The prototype was designed by an Uruguayan designer, Claudio Sibille. I like the way you can fit the chair into the cabinet and fold the work table down and roll the little office space into a corner. The quality of the wood is attractive and the design modern so it would work with most any decor.”

Just a side note… I’d love to see some designs from these folks that allow the interchanging of parts to make all sorts of different units… like lego are to toys, nomad could be to furniture.
Making the most of a small space while keeping it from feeling crammed full of stuff isn’t easy. Here are some examples of furniture that transforms for multiple uses from a company called Boxetti. Lots of great ideas for clever woodworkers here.
