Central cube sets Paris micro-flat into work/living/rest modes – Paris Video



published: 2019-06-23 05:56:37

To create more functionality in a 16-square-meter (172-square-foot) Paris apartment, designers Elisa Nobile and Enrico Bona created a custom cabinet containing two beds, a desk, a kitchen and a bathroom with an unfolding shower. The furniture cube leaves more than half the space clear so it can be used as a rotating bedroom, dining room or home office: a secondary table descends from an adjacent wall offering space for the owner’s model-making interests.

The designers (EDB Studio) wanted the cube’s multifunctionality to remain hidden so they avoided handles, instead relying on a push/pull system to unfold furniture or open cabinets. To prevent fingerprints on the white cabinets, they used a nano-tech material called Fenix which if scratched can be repaired by applying heat.

Located in Paris’ fashionable Marais district- for centuries home to French royalty- the apartment features the limestone walls typical of the neighborhood (which the designers uncovered) and an exposed wooden-beamed ceiling.

  3. Over the large open area the solution for storage could have been those vertical units that go up and down in the "Transformer furniture hidden on ceiling deploys by command" video from a month ago. The bathroom seemed to have an elegant way of making full use of the space with the folding shower. However the kitchen left just a few things to be desired. Overall the package was interesting and unique, but as with most things could still be tweaked and improved upon.

  4. Disgusting, how NY, and Paris, have people living like cattle, and charging outrageous rent, or thousands to buy.

  9. I love it. Its not original. This idea of the multi-room/function box has been around for a few years now. She could have gained a lot more space for her client if she had put a queen sized bed at the kick level of the pod which would have forced her to do a slight walk up in the restroom which is fine as it would have given a further delineation between the spaces. The bed would pull out and convert the entire place into a bedroom. Leaving more storage where the two twins are currently. There are also beautiful chairs that hang like art and not at all discernible as chairs but taken of the wall become chairs. Even with the economy of space, she could have added a comfy chair that becomes a love seat. But aside from the fact of what she could have done to gain more space for the client and that the pod is not original, she did a great job.

  11. I think they did a lot with the space that was there. I found the bathroom the most impressive of all. I have see wet baths before but this give an actual space for the shower that is keeping the entire room from getting wet. The kitchen though? Not sure about that.
