Rainer Graff of Atelier Graff is clearly a minimalist, and thinks if you have a big loft that it should be open and flexible. He asks "How can openness and generosity of the loft floor plan be maintained during everyday use?"

He calls it a dilemma: how to get the functions you need without taking away from the loft's vastness and authenticity. But it is a problem shared with those living in small spaces: how do you live in them and maintain a minimalist lifestyle.

When closed it is but a mobile platform. But open, it serves as a seating area and work surface, complete with video monitors. Just what every homeworker needs.
