3D Printed Micro House
You’d hardly believe this was a house: from the outside it looks like an oversized jelly tin, but this 50ft² structure is a mobile micro home for young people who spend very little time at home.
Designed by 3M futureLAB students, the structure manages to cram in a bathroom, kitchen and bed as well as a space for media projection.
When is a chair not a chair? When it’s a desk. This rather nifty chair-desk hybrid (let’s call it a chesk for now) is the creation of architect Pierre Louis, and is currently on French Kickstarter equivalent Kiss Kiss Bank Bank.
The chesk is designed to easily flip from lounger to office surface, although it’s probably not the best place to set up your desktop computer.
This egg-shaped sleeping pod is for adventurers who like a little luxury.
Measuring 13ft long and 6.5ft wide, its design is based on the fruit of the baobab tree, which dominates central African landscapes.
It can be rigged up for any travel scenario, with space for a double bed if needed, and the option of tree suspension once it has been transported by trailer.
This residential development in Taiwan achieves the remarkable feat of combining futuristic design with mountain imagery and a grass roof.
Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, it combines residential units with commercial spaces to create a stunningly landscapes community. Simply put, we want to live there.

As a side table topped with solar panels, this piece of furniture is designed to charge your tech using just natural light.
Designed by Italy-based Studio Natural, the table is intended to be used as an island piece without the need for tethering to the nearest wall, banishing the standard mess of cables once and for all.
