In a small space, it's important that furniture has multiple uses. The Robot 619 Chest, designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta functions as sleek tower of drawers and a small writing desk. In addition to it's tiny footprint (literally! - they look like feet), Robot's overlapping wooden drawers and steel support structure reminds us of the Sapien Book Towers...

This would be great in a workspace, functioning as storage and a desk when needed. The Robot 19 was designed in 1989 but it one of the new offerings from UK retailer Nest. Manufactured by Alias, the chest comes in natural pearwood or painted black. The chest is 35 cm square and has a height of 121 cm (waist-high).
