However, Drawer’s most interesting feature would be its cooling cup holder!
When it comes to kitchen appliances such as microwaves and ovens, they do tend to be bulky and space-consuming.

The Book Chair by Sou Fujimoto is in fact a bookshelf with a chair embedded in it! The chair can be slid in and out, due to a chair-shaped section in the bookshelf.

This multifunctional piece of furniture is perfect for single-person homes whose residents are major readers!
The Low Table IV by Kai Takeshima has a little secret! Once you lift the tabletop, you can easily access a compact storage space, add its wooden Japanese-inspired aesthetics to the mix, and it could be the perfect minimal addition to your compact living space.

With its small footprint, it’s perfect for the micro-est of micro-living spaces!
