Clever multipurpose furniture


A new range of multipurpose furniture saves space with a sense of fun.

Designed by Gilles Belley, ‘ROOMS’ consists of various easy-assemble furniture systems, which inject a splash of colour and style into the smallest spaces.

The systems include ‘WALL’, ‘AREA’, and ‘BLOCK’ and can be adjusted, split in two, or even condensed for various functions – for instance, a wall partition can be transformed into a working desk.

Discover the genius of ‘ROOMS’ here and tell us if you would go modular.

An office that packs itself up at the end of the day


Heldergroen officeAn office in Amsterdam packs itself away after work hours, to encourage a good work-life balance and free the space for other activities.

The office, which belongs to design studio Heldergroen, uses theatre machinery to make the desks, complete with computers and paperwork, ‘disappear’.

At 6pm, a member of staff simply has to turn a key, which lifts the tables and clears the space.

Sander Veenendaal, the company’s creative director, says: “We are able to pull the tables up into the ceiling and make the whole room into a dance floor, yoga studio, trend session, networking reception, or anything else you can think of – the floor is literally yours.”

A table reflecting the depths of the ocean


The Abyss TableA layered coffee table by Duffy London resembles the depths of the ocean.

The Abyss Table stacks blue glass on slices of light wood, which gives the impression of a sandy sea bed.

The glass echoes the effect of the ocean, as the layers appear to darken as they deepen.

The uniquely shaped table mimics the contours of the ocean and was handmade by Christopher Duffy’s team.
