Home in a Box: 5 Room Solutions for Living in Small Spaces


It is one thing to design a space-saving idea for a single room, or a piece of multi-purpose transforming furniture … but this collection is on another scale entirely. From all-in-one living, kitchen and work spaces to convertible couches and expanding entertainment centers, Boxetti has raised the bar on (or: opened a box of) modern modular interior designs.

In fact, it is too much for one article – so consider this an introduction to what may be the coolest contemporary attempt to create all-in-one furniture for virtually every room of a home. The concept itself is fairly simple: using a consistent visual language of shapes, colors and functions, each piece in the system is a stand-alone, self-contained object but also part of a larger aesthetic whole.

Designer Rolands Landsbergs is the Latvian mastermind behind this series of ingenious designs. He has a background in showroom and exhibition work, which has clearly translated into his furniture and interior ideas. Following basic principles of “functionality, advanced technology and [modern] minimalism,” each modular ‘box’ can be transformed at the push of a button but is also constructed out of high-quality materials to remain rigid and durable during conversions and use.

In a further display of ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking, even the Boxetti website is designed around the aesthetics of the furniture itself – another reflection of the careful and thorough considerations that went into each phase of the design. Ingenious.
