Qbic's Tiny Hotels Exemplify Tech in Small Spaces

Hotels can provide a lot of inspiration for fitting your life into a small space. The miniature Euro hotel chain, Qbic, offers up some ideas for incorporating tech with little room. Their solution: Building a modular bedroom and bathroom that can be disassembled and reassembled anywhere.

The modular system is called Cubi and incorporates both a bedroom and bathroom within a 23-square-foot footprint. Philippe Starck designed fixtures fill the bathroom, while the bedroom features a flat screen built into one of the Cubi's walls.

The colorful lighting can be changed on a whim by guests, to match whatever mood their in at the moment.

A small bar table at the head of the bed provides a spot for business travelers to get some work done on their laptops, while catching up on the news from the LCD across the mattress.

In all, the rooms measure 82 to 115 square feet, yet feature everything you'd need (minus a kitchen) to make it a permanent (and modern) domicile.
