This small apartment, designed by Spanish architect studio PKMN architectures, is all about space and movement. Here the occupants can create their own ideal interior, as open or private as they like, just by moving the walls and partitions. Clever mechanics and unified color scheme make these transitions look and feel seamless, as if the space takes different shapes on its own, morphing along with the movement of the people in it. Watch the video after the break to see the process in action.

IKEAtable

Check this out, ladies and gents: IKEA concept kitchen 2025. According to company’s head of design Marcus Engman, it’s going to be all about the table. For EXPO Milano 2015, IKEA previewed a concept table called the Table For Living, which tells you what you can make with various ingredients and heats your food, no stove required. Very futuristic gadgetry, and no more excuses for not cooking at home. I like that.

If you cook in a tiny kitchen, you will appreciate the premise of this cookware line. Ovation by Tefal is designed to save cabinet space. The pots seamlessly nest into each other, even the lid handles fold flat. Just what a shoebox dwelling cook needs!

Dynks is a modular shelving system by Polish brand Tabanda. The beauty of this product is in its multifunctionality and ease of assembly. You can build an attractive bookcase, no matter how big or small, in minutes with these blocks. I also love that you can vary the shelf width, which is great for a large variety of books and media. Available for purchase here.

I really like this concept of a self-planting upside-down herb pot. Verdure by London based young designer Seoyeonjin Choi simplifies the indoor gardening to the point of a no-brainer. All you need to do is to insert the seeds into the soil sponge compartment and add water every now and then. The sponge will absorb just the right amount of water, and the halogen lamp will keep your herbs alive and thriving. The screen will protect the plant from any kitchen factors. And the best part, the planter can be attached to the wall or backdrop, so it doesn’t take any counter space.
