In architectural and urban planning circles, the micro-dwelling has recently been a hot topic of investigation. This columnar kitchen, designed by Massimo Facchinetti for Clei, fits—quite snugly, I might add—into that concept. While borrowing beyond a doubt from Joe Colombo's Boby taboret and modular kitchen designs, with their swiveling horizontal planes, this compact unit reaches upward. A smarter use of space, I think. resourcefurniture.com
