Something that could change dormitories, studio apartments and other tight living situations is brewing in Belgium. It’s called “Flexit,” and it’s the brainchild of designer Pieter Peulen. After spending his college years in student housing, Peulen was inspired to consider how to improve conditions by working around the lack of space so many of us, even now, not so fondly remember.

His solution was to build a compact living system that was both functional and modern. Crafted from solid powder-coated steel and redwood, the Flexit employs three levels of space, all of which can be connected in different ways.

The upper level allows you to hang clothes and towels while the middle level houses desk space. Lastly, on the bottom level there is a twin bed. “Flexit” also comes with optional accessories such as a nightstand, mirror or caddy. The best part though is that it only takes about 20 minutes to put together. Right now the system is more of a conceptual project, but we’d love to see it available for sale in the future.
