Originally published in December 2007, this unfolding office by Michael Chen and Kari Anderson of Normal Projects solved a serious space problem. By knocking down most of the apartment’s walls and concentrating kitchen storage, a closet, a bar, a bed, and a home office into a blue-lacquered cabinetry unit in the center of the room, Chen and Anderson were able to open the space and maximize functionality.

A perforated steel divider rolls out to allow the office compartment to unfold.

The Murphy bed compartment is lined with a cork panel and contains a small shelving unit that functions as a night stand.
