Designer Till Könneker moved into a studio apartment in Bern, Switzerland, and noticed that he had no bed and no storage space whatsoever for his clothes, shoes, electronics, and LP collections. Rather than buying a bed here and a dresser there, Könneker decided to design his own storage system.
"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."
Könneker teamed up with craftsman Remo Zimmerli of Holzlabor to create the Living Cube, a bed/display case/storage solution that can hold most of your worldly possessions in one attractive (and useful) piece - and let you sleep on it, too!
