Urban dwellings often do not provide sufficient space for living and working. There are many people who use same space and organizing a separate home office is sometimes impossible. Further to that, artists need more than a few square meters to work on pictures or sculptures and most of them have separate premises for their creative work. Designer Harry Thaler has taken an innovative approach to solving the space problem. He designed a residence for the contemporary art museum Museion, called Atelierhouse, as a modern home for artists and curators and the living room furniture design is so creative that it allows to transform the space and create a bedroom or an office.
Flexible living room furniture design
The project unites an art studio and residence in one. It combines working and living space and can accommodate more than one occupant. The original living room furniture design is minimalist yet quite comfortable to meet all the needs of the inhabitants. Made of nailed pine wood and MDF, the pieces are easily movable and adjustable. The furniture set consists of a single and double bed, a closet, a dining table, some chairs, a floor lamp and a big wooden frame which can be used as a shelf or additional workspace. All pieces have clean, straight lines and cubic shapes but their main feature is their flexibility. The minimalist design does not affect the functionality and convenience.
Small living room furniture design with great conveniece
The Atelierhouse successfully unites public and private spaces with open floor plan concept and contemporary living room furniture design. The dining table becomes a working space, if needed and vice versa. If the occupant would like to entertain visitors or hold a meeting, it can be turned into a conference table at once. The beds can be closed up tight and people would see floating pine cubes. The master bed is designed with a window on a single side which is easily pulled from the inside and a wide-open wall on the other. The back of the double bed cube conceals a closet equipped with 2 extended incorporated drawers, an open shelf, a black hanging rod and a full-length mirror. The other closet features a built-in lighting.
