We've always been fond of musicians' homes; where in our mind, it would be nothing less than the ultimate entertaining spaces for guests. Luckily, for those who can't afford to fit an entire band in their space, they can substitute by building in a custom hide-away DJ turntable island that'll be sure to impress.
Designed by Brooklyn-based design studios TOKENnyc, this 2000+ square foot loft is filled to the brim with custom furniture and fixtures, but more notably, a living room that features a dedicated DJ table which folds away like an old fashioned iron board when not in use.
On the side of the DJ table, we have magazine holders being used to hold vinyl records instead - a clever way to keep the practical stuff nearby, but also showcase your tastes in music (and allow for guests to selectively pick from a curated collection).
We've spotted similar DJ table designs in the past, but none of which have really seen actual production (and we imagine it'll stay that way for some time). So it is a bit refreshing to see something go from 'just a clever idea' to something that actually will receive good use in the near term.
And if not, we'd happily take the custom unit off their hands and place it in our own Unplggd offices for a good ol' post-work afterparty.
