The Cult of Disappearing Design

On a more practical, less superficial level, disappearing design is meant to both maximize one’s ground plan (particularly in small urban apartments) and minimize the “visual noise” created by things like bulky knobs, dust-prone vents and the ancient albatross of many decorators: the wide-screen TV.

More architects should design for saving space and making it possible to remove unused furniture, even beds.  The Japanese have been packing density in a small space for years.  

Some people enjoy clutter.  They like to show their friends their extensive art collection.  Other people want only what’s needed, at the moment, with a few evergreen pieces.

Or you can just create your very own Apple Store Home.  

embed beds and desks grounds of an apartment or house.  I just want The Japanese do this but only some  and coffee ta you down into the floors and they’d just pop out when you need them.
