Ever Dreamed of Sleeping Inside a Transformer?

Flatbook is excited to announce a joint project with MorphLab to bring innovative, tech-based home solutions to market. What does this mean? Well, imagine if you could double the size of your apartment with a touch of your hand, transforming a single room into a kitchen, office or bedroom depending on your needs.

“We want to prove that a small space can act like a big one,” says MorphLab CEO Hasier Larrea. “So instead of a big house in the suburbs you have a smaller one in the city center, in reach of everything. This leads to less pollution and traffic. And more vibrant cities.”

The product of 4 years research at MIT’s CityLabs, MorphLab is a Boston-based group of engineers and architects working to design “a new generation of dynamic and intelligent spaces.” Starting with this Flatbook in Cambridge, which we like to call ‘The Transformer.’
