Casulo – Apartment in a Box!
And you thought IKEA was innovative!
It seems the Germans are giving the Swedes a run for their money on this one. Casulo, which is Portuguese for cocoon, describes perfectly this prototype product. The box transforms into an armoire, desk with drawers, desk chair, 2 more seats, six shelf bookcase, and a bed and mattress. Ideal for frequent movers, this unique solution is also environmentally friendly, as there is no waste; all of the material in the box, including the packaging and the box itself, is used in the final set-up.
They even poke fun at IKEA on their website with this picture:
