We’ve all had those days.

Getting up we think “there’s just too much stuff in my apartment”.

And then we think, “oh well, what can I do. There’s just no room anymore”.

But there are solutions out there. It’s just that we, mortals, have no idea about these solutions.

Most of us live in dwellings that are always “smaller” than what we’d “ideally” like. There’s not enough room on the kitchen table, not enough space for the bicycles, there’s not enough space for all the clothes we own.

Unfortunately, space and the perceive “lack” of space, has been a philosophical battle for most of human history. A statement that would be agreed with by most anthropologists in the world.

So, what do we humans do with this perpetual and annoying problem?

We get like Transformers, and shape shift like Bumble Bee.

Basically, industrial design experts are cool (I’m in awe of the Dyson vacuum cleaner designer, actually). They think of best-of methods and put them into practical and efficient terms. The output is delivered as products and solutions that could serve the populous.

In this case, solving the space issue in a home.

Of course, there are many solutions to problems like our living space. Not all of us can afford to solve them, however.

But the point is that there are solutions, and ideas for our challenges.

And isn’t that a cool thing in itself? Heck, at least we can dream…

Now, on to the interior design porn, shall we?
