25-07-2011 Design Trend: Space Savers

City living doesn’t have to translate to cramped shoebox. While many live in rooms with limited space, a new wave of furniture designers are revolutionising the meaning of functional furniture, creating a new design trend. Take the Living Tools collection, for example. Inventor and designer, Yi-Cong Lu created the 'panel,' a multi-purpose object that becomes a room divider, desk, clothes hanger or bookshelf, depending on its orientation. Italian manufacturers, Clei are another brand helping homedwellers to take advantage of every usable square metre of their living arena. A table that folds out into a bed? They’ve done it. Like all great design, these innovators are creating functional, adaptable and stylish pieces worth staying home for.
