The URBIA Furniture System from New York Architecture firm OBRA Architects is a modular, interior system that can be customized to include furniture, room dividers, shelving, storage and even stairs and lofted rooms. Made from ash plywood, which is both inexpensive and lightweight, URBIA allows homeowners to transform open loft spaces into multi-level homes with plenty of storage space...

URBIA was designed specifically for urban spaces that are often very expensive — allowing relatively quick and inexpensive interior architecture.

"The System is composed of hollow wood panels and cabinet units that can partition a space vertically or horizontally depending on the potential of the existing interior. These units are designed for maximum structural performance, minimum weight and ease of installation, relying on hollow 1/2" ash plywood construction and a maximum size of 2×8 feet that fits through doors and onto elevator cabs. The system can be deployed vertically to define partitions or horizontally to create loft floors by staggering the 8-foot panels to reinforce each other to a span of up to 20 feet."
