At a time when affordable living space is becoming scarce and the grand opera is not always possible, a Kammerspiel (intimate theatre) can be a fitting alternative. In his new project Nils Holger Moormann has playfully tackled the subject of ‘Living in a small space’ and focused on one large piece of furniture. A room within a room, condensing enough features and space to take the airiness of the rest of the apartment into consideration. All important living areas find their customised space on, at and also in the cube. As personal lifestyle habits differ as much as the occupants themselves, Moormann’s Kammerspiel can always be conceived differently and individually. Varied external module designs offer a stage for writers, sportsmen and women, home workers or the fashion conscious. Sleeping, eating, working and reading are organised on the external sides, while everyday essentials as well as a walk-in wardrobe are accommodated on the inside.
A 140 x 200 cm bed surface on the upper side of the cube provides a circumferential frame with storage and concealed connection options for a mobile or other electrical appliances. The stairs leading to the sleeping area are also used as storage space thanks to a large drawer. There is a built-in cupboard next to it with a clothes rail, drawers and compartments. The space under the upholstered sofa in the seating recess is also used for drawers. Thanks to numerous shelves your favourite book is always on hand. Open and closed kitchen shelves with a folding table and magnetic panel complete the individual kitchen unit. The bicycle takes a box seat in an indirectly lit frame.
The walk-in interior of the living cube offers sufficient storage space for drinks crates, bottles of wine, a vacuum cleaner and cleaning utensils and bucket. Additional possessions can be stored in the numerous other crates, shelves and on the small clothes rail. There is an allocated place for dustpan and brush, snowboard or skis.
