XS architecture vs XL furniture

When we talk about the future of shedworking on Shedworking, we usually feature microarchitecture which fuses the shed concept with something more residential. Here's an example which takes a different approach, going for something which melds furniture and shedlike atmospheres, XS architecture vs XL furniture by Worapong Manupipatpong. The designs are ladder-linked, wooden, split-level shedbenches. Here's what he says:
"I’m interested in furniture design, not only its appearance, but how we spatially interact with it... I am also interested in micro architecture when the architectonic scale is as close as human scale. It’s about the quality of smallness. Smallness is probably the spatial quality that reminds us childhood nostalgia when we can access to most of the small spaces in our home. We can no longer play under the table, be hide the couch, or hide in the wardrobe. There are no such secrete spaces anymore when our body has grown up. Those small spaces still exist and visible, but not accessible anymore."
