The Living Cube is multi-purpose minimalistic furniture that is perfect for small spaces. The design is the brainchild of Switzerland-based designer Till Könneker. He created the design when he moved into a small studio apartment that had very little storage space. With his creation, he found space for his vinyl collection, TV, clothes, and shoes and also incorporated a guest bed on top of it. It has a modular design and there are three ideas presented on their website: The Urban Cube, The Living Wall and The Mini Cube.
“I wanted to focus on practicality and functionality and skip any unnecessary elements. My goal was to come up with a timeless design that fits any space and living situation,” Könneker said. “A house is not really flexible but we can re-think the space and furniture inside. I believe useful furniture must be adapted to the needs of the user.”
