Austrian designer Christian Precht has designed a compact living environment called OrganiCube.
The conceptual nine square metre apartment is made of Corian and comprises facilities for living, sleeping, working and bathing.
Here's some more information from Precht:
OrganiCube explores the creative potential of the material world on the one hand and a study of living in a limited space on the other hand.
Living on a small ground floor things have to get shifted to achieve the largest possible shell.
It is an alternate look of an income-appropriate living unit of 3x3x3 meter. The idea is to take facilities that belong to living and to its tradition inherently and transform it into a coherent design. Through its cubic shape, the OrganiCube can be easily stacked and implemented in many environments.
The infinitive space is conceived as a technological double skin, mainly manufactured out of DuPont's Corian.
The design shows what the abilities of material in the future are: fluid, dynamic and curvilinear in one complex shape, which includes all needs for modern living. Therefore the organizational and formal structure is based on functional elements. OrganiCube defines a new architectural condition outside the orthogonal, off-grid and harmonic inside.
Getting all the facilities on a ground floor of 9sqm, functional elements have to be compact and compressed. Through compression things get folded.These foldings are a functional element as well and the Cube provides a high standard of accommodation for one or two people, defining main facilities: living/sleeping/working and a separate bathroom.
At one place a line shapes for example the wardrobe and a few steps further it flows into a completely different living setup. All featured curves have their distinctive function and purpose. Through this moving and fluid interior the cube should bring harmony to residents in a sensual way.
