Box of Delights - HUT (Habitat for the Urban Tribe)

It's a commonplace that shedworkers need compact solutions and they don't come much more compact than this marvellous design by Kevin Fawley, built for Tom Monteyne's "Business Studio" (Faculty of Architecture, University of Manitoba). Called HUT (Habitat for the Urban Tribe), Kevin describes it as "a portable storage unit which comes apart to furnish a living room set with two chairs, a loveseat, coffee table and shelf. It facilitates and ritualizes the nomadic nature of the urban tribe."

Pictured above is how it looks all packed up. Pictured below is what it looks like all unpacked. Marvellous.
