Studio_o1's Barcode Room has reinvented the concept of spatial management. Commissioned by the Japanese real estate company Able, the award-winning concept features twelve different "bars" or walls that can be configured in multiple combinations to either save or occupy space.
The twelve bars include a kitchen bar, a sleeping bar and a living bar that together create a customizable space that changes with the occupants’ daily needs. Furniture and storage is built into each of these simple wooden structures, creating the ultimate modular apartment for urbanites.
Showcasing the remarkable flexibility created by these sliding partitions, Studio_01 posted images of a lunch room, a meeting room, a double bed room and a cooking party room. In addition to saving space and materials, the designers have catered to the ADD generation that is so quickly bored with same old, same old.
