Design4D have designed the refurbishment of a micro-flat that has kinetic walls and morphing furniture

Design4D have completed the refurbishment of an apartment in South East London. Film making was an important part of the ideas generating process which resulted in a layout based upon the narrative of how the client lived rather than preconceived room typologies.The single 30sqm room consists of three basic elements. These are a red rotating media wall which can be positioned to serve any space, a solid black work surface which extends the length of the flat and a white screen wall which unfolds to reveal functions and define spaces.Symbolically the hearth to the home is a red digital media centre from which he can view films while washing, work while in bed, reply to emails upon the sofa or watch television in the reflection of the mirrors while preparing a meal. The mirrors also have the advantage of doubling the perceived volume of the apartment.
