If you’re not old enough to remember Sprockets, here’s a history lesson. All we’re saying is: Germans make weird stuff sometimes. 

Like the Kammerspiel. 

The Kammerspiel is the cube-within-a-cube you didn’t know you needed. But look at it long enough, and its utility will come clear. Especially if you own an empty warehouse loft, or a basement in which you need to set up a staging area. Sort of like that dude in Don’t BreatheWe bet he could get all his equipment in there.

According to its designer, Nils Holger Moormann, the Kammerspiel is his version of an “intimate theater,” meant for a time when “affordable living space is becoming scarce and the grand opera is not always possible.”

Within the cube, various modules allow different configurations for different needs: “for writers, sportsmen and women, homeworkers or the fashion conscious.” A bed goes on top; storage space is offered throughout, with room for reading, drafting, or drawing apportioned elsewhere. 

It’s an ask, plopping down a massive cube in the middle of your apartment. But for a private space in a shared warehouse loft, we say give it a go.
