How can a large piece of furniture safe space? By combining several rooms in itself. The piece called Kammerspiel (Intimate Theatre) is the largest piece of furniture the German designer Nils Holger Moormann ever created. And its role is to rethink the approach to living in a small space. The item includes sleeping, eating, working, and reading areas. A staircase that doubles as a set of drawers leads to the bedroom level. The inside of the cube provides space for the walk-in closet and pantry. See more photos after the break.

I absolutely love this bluetooth speaker. Created by Muemma, the ARiNA speaker blends with any environment seamlessly. And a bowl-like shape is a nice touch too because it allows the speaker to be used as a catch-all vessel. The piece features a charger, and when charged it lasts for ten hours of music playing, with no wires hanging down the side. Awesome gift. Available for purchase here.
