Ikea furniture has always been fairly inspired and innovative, but the Ikea Storage Box Bar may be the greatest thing to come from the company yet -- and it wasn't even designed by them!

Conceived by architecture students Diogo Aguiar and Teresa Otto from the Universidade do Porto in Portugal, the Ikea Storage Box Bar is comprised of 420 boxes with one of its walls folding down to become a fully functional pub. What's more, each unit contains an LED light within it that changes color to the music being played inside the bar! Stats for Upcycled Rave Bars Trending: Older & Mild
