Space Invaders: New Objects for Small Spaces

This month's Metropolis Magazine covers design for small spaces: "As urban dwellers are confined to increasingly compact quarters, there is greater demand for space-saving innovations in the home. Storage solutions and efficiency appliances are two ways to make the most of small square footage." Some, like the Ecopod Recycling Unit, the Columbo designed Boffi Minikitchen and the Sheer Kitchen have been seen here before; others are wall and storage systems that are not particularly unique to small spaces; others are very cool, like a fascinating "dining desk from Poggenpohl or the Belatto Action Wardrobe that also can act as a room divider. The new Bosch fridge fits in 24 inches and has a vacation button to reduce energy usage (and even a Sabbath Switch for orthodox jews!), Remember, Small Fridges make Good Cities!
