Space and Materiality Project #3 – Phase #1
Research: Urban Space Living
In the city, it is true that renting an apartment is expensive. People pay for at least $4k to $5k for a normal space or sometimes it’s even smaller than that. It is hard sometimes when you have a really tiny apartment but you are still figuring out space for decoration and furniture is one of the most important. However, since space is limited in the city so the owners of the apartment have to figure out and find the solution to the organize and minimize the space.
The idea of minimizing space of living is a way of using the least amount of space but it contains the most objects and materials that we need for living such as furniture, kitchen appliances…etc. It is important as apartment furniture and condo furniture where space may be limited. To make the best use of the available space, the furniture may be designed somewhat smaller than traditionally-sized furniture or may be used for more than one purpose.
Furniture that is designed for space saving can be used in different methods. Some come on wheels so that they can be rolled up and stored out of the way when not in use. It is even possible to get sinks, complete with countertops, that are like this. However, most space saving furniture is more traditional in its design.
