Due to finances, the ever-growing urbanization and the environment, space-saving furniture has become a huge hit in today’s world. The best example of extremely user-friendly furniture that saves you both money and space is certainly an ingenious Japanese invention called the Kenchikukagu Foldable Rooms, designed by architect Toshihiko Suzuki, currently a professor of design systems at the Tokyo Metropolitan University, and the owner of Atelier OPA.
The Kenchikukagu collapsible mobile furniture set comprises of a guest room, a kitchen and a work station. Each piece can be stowed away into a compact case on wheels and easily stored. The work station or mobile office includes a desk, a shelf, storage space, a chair, an outlet tap, and LED light. It comes with a wooden or aluminum finish (available colours are silver, black, red and natural or dark wood grain). In 2013, Atelier OPA made a new steel foldaway office station with magnets that you can attach notes, an umbrella, a bag, a jacket, or whatever you need to.
The Kenchikukagu guest room includes a collapsible bed, a small table and lighting fixture, while the kitchen is comprised of a sink, a stowaway table, drawers, a recipe holder, and an induction cooktop. Atelier OPA is currently in the process of manufacturing a foldable furniture set for children, as well as developing a collapsible guest bedroom to suit the elderly population. watch video below
