I think it is safe to say that the Living Tools collection may have just revolutionized the idea of modular, multifunctional furniture. Comprised of just three pieces, the collection can be reconfigured in a endless number of ways to adapt to need, space and other miscellaneous factors.

Conceived and designed by Berlin-born, Leipzig-based Yi-Cong Lu, the Living Tools collection has been especially made for small spaces. It boasts a collapsible lamp that can be hung on the wall like a broom, a wall-mounted desk that can be twisted and hung as a wardrobe, stand as a room divider, used as a whiteboard or even as a bookshelf; and a set of pivoting curtain rails that change the way a room is split up.
