We can’t say enough about the benefits of a compact living space. It’s an instant clutter eliminator, a life-size jigsaw puzzle, and a laboratory for experiments in feng shui. But the best thing about compact living? The multi-functional [2] furniture.

The radically imaginative Vestal Design [3] has created one for the books. Their DoubleSpace Kitchenette [4] goes from armchair to stovetop in a matter of moments.

Pointing out that you will probably never cook while seated, Vestal proves that two mutually exclusive domestic activities pair excellently in a single piece of furniture. The melamine countertop and dual electric burners stow safely beneath the cushioned seat until you need them. You can roll the unit around your space as much as you want, constantly rearranging the layout of your little home.

Vestal characterize themselves as a “product ideation foundation” creating “disruptive solutions.” This is just the kind of disruption we’re looking for: outrageous design fusion for highly functional spaces. More, please!
