Land Peel furniture lets a room become anything it needs to be
by Mark R
I found this concept technology yesterday, and it is appropriately called the Land Peel. I suppose Floor Peel might be a better name, because this is what the user is doing.
As you can see from the picture, part of the floor can “peel up” and essentially make a convenient desk. Granted, it is a desk that you have to cross your legs under in order to make them fit, but a cool desk nonetheless. You will note the folding up of the “chair”, which is nothing more than something to rest your back on.
You will also note that the mini-desk has a green frame, and the mini-chair has a red one. I’m guessing that each color is some chromatic code for a different function. I wonder what the blue and yellow ones can peel up to.
In other words, what you have is some sort of room that would look empty at first sight, but the floors could be folded like origami to become any room that it needs to be: bedroom, dining room, study, etc. Perhaps this could be any college student’s standard dorm room.
It was designed by Shin Yamashita, a student at the Kyoto Institute of Technology. Since this is still a concept, it will be a while until you will come over to a house who has this stuff. Too bad.
