When designer and artist Till Könneker moved into a studio apartment in Bern, Switzerland with no storage room, he sought a design solution. Könneker whipped up some drawings of a minimalist cube with a shelf for his vinyl collection, space for his flat panel TV, as well as clothes and shoes. He'd stash other odds 'n' ends inside the cube itself. And on top, he placed a bonus guest bed. Carpenter and fabricator Remo of holzlaborbern.ch brought the sketches into the realm of reality. And voila, a beautiful design piece that serves multiple purposes.
