More and better living is the goal; footprint reduction is the main constraint. City Home’s transformable-interior-modules team embarked on an initial prototyping phase, detailing unprecedented mechanisms, crafting new spatial intelligences, re-wiring home as a platform for innovation, and building new bridges in the void between physical and virtual space.

The Transformable Desk-Top is the first complete prototype of the “robowall” concept, a moving wall that saves precious space in small apartments, and offers the flexibility to accomodate a variety of different uses.

The main idea is that a desk can be unfolding from a vertical position where it operates as a bookshelf, and extending when in horizontal position to facilitate different tasks, such as reading, tele-conferencing, or even dinning.
