Look! "Matroshka" Compact Living Concept

Last week, Laure posted about these Matryoshaka nesting dolls, and here we find a spacial living concept inspired by the same idea. The "Matroshka" is a "solution for storage, company, structure and every day luxury..."

Basically, it's has a bookshelf, double bed, sofa, dinner table, four stools, working space, wardrobe, and small storage, all able to be compacted down to around 4 square meters. However, it has the ability to expand and be arranged into many different possible configurations to suit different needs. Created by a group of Swedish students initially as a university project, it is now making the international Design Exposition rounds. We're loving the thinking behind it and there's a lot of interesting ideas to inspire if you're living in a small space. Check out more details and see more pics about it here (including how all the pieces fit together and their different combinations) at their website. (via NotCot, via Below the clouds)
