What shoebox dweller doesn’t dream about a walk-in closet… And while real estate limitations are hard to overcome, the solution might still be found. Consider this clever wardrobe by Netherlands based young designer Hosun Ching. The innovative item opens up to create a dressing room experience. Here is how Ching describes the idea:

“The depth of a standard wardrobe is 60cm. That is simply not practical, because it means that you literally lose sight of your clothing; and what you don’t see, you don’t wear. Walk-In Closet is a smart storage unit designed to solve this problem. It opens out into a mini-fitting room, complete with mirrors to view outfits from every angle. The focus is on organisation and visibility. There are drawers for accessories and the reduced depth does away with those ‘hidden’ stacks.”
