How's this for a space saver?
Lately, I've been struggling to find a place in my apartment where I could set up a second desk. The whole husband-wife sharing thing has been stretched to its limit while my computer has been in the shop, and it's time for me to carve out a niche away from my husband's office space.
Our guest bedroom/office/box and storage room will not fit a second desk. Which means I've been roaming the hallways with a measuring tape, looking for a corner to stow a desk for my soon-to-be-repaired laptop and a stack of home decor catalogues, magazines and books. The only acceptable space seems to be in my bedroom, and I worry about having to stare at my work while trying to go to sleep at night.
But, if I had this nifty room in a box - called Kenchikukagu - from Toshihiko Suzuki, I wouldn't be shopping for screens. They offer a kitchen, guest room and office.
Best of all, it only takes up space when you're using it! When you're done that article/meal/good night's sleep, you simply fold it back into it's handy storage box and tuck it into a corner or closet - what more could you ask for?
Obviously I'm keen on the office, because it would solve my current dilemma. The guest room would come in super handy for more than a few of my friends, and the kitchen is just too cool not to mention - can you imagine what you could do with all that extra space previously occupied by full-sized, fixed countertops?
The rooms are available on Amazon's Japanese site - but they're not cheap at 800,000 Japanese yen, or just over $9,700 Canadian.
