“Cube” is a two-level minimal living space on wheels. A room within a room, it was originally custom-made for a Feng Shui teacher who wanted a separate, more private space at home for studying, sleeping and meditating. Designed by Californian studio Space Flavor, it follows the basic Feng Shui principles of yin (private and closed) and yang (public and open).

“Cube” is used by Ming, a teacher who uses his own apartment for his classes. His already small living space was in need of a separate space for his daily activities. The right solution came from Space Flavor, who built a new two-level mobile unit on wheels.

“Cube” measures 8 feet x 8 feet x 8 feet and is simply made from prefab Ash plywood panels (with beautiful grain patterns), steel profiles, translucent roller shades, and frosted acrylic panels in place of some walls.

Designed for simple assembly and disassembly using common power tools, its parts can easily fit through any standard doorway. Built in a true minimal and functional style, the stairs neatly double as a cabinet for keeping clothes and other small items out of sight.

The people at Space Flavor have managed to keep the “yin and yang” of public and private in harmony with this cool, compact eight-foot cube. See more out-of-the-box designs by Space Flavor here.
