Layout graduate Jordi Iranzo has created a storage system for little living regions that is suspended from the ceiling so it doesn’t take up any floor or wall room.
Iranzo, who studied at the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design in Germany, designed the Dalt system to make the most of the scarce room in increasingly tiny city houses.
Last year furniture giant Ikea launched a 51-piece assortment with a related premise, based on analysis suggesting that one-in-5 urban dwellers now lives in a space smaller sized than 30 square metres.
“This undertaking is designed for men and women who need a lot more room,” Iranzo told Dezeen. “Today, area is one of the most valuable factors we have.”
Dalt comprises 4 ceiling-storage objects, which includes a white steel outfits rack and a laundry sack produced of a steel ring and suspended leather ‘net’.
There is also a circular welded-steel basket that could be used as a floating bedside table or to preserve meals in, and a rectangular basket, which could keep something from workplace supplies to sports products.

For stability, every object is suspended at 4 points from a laser-lower pulley-system, enabling it to be drawn down for use and then lifted out of the way afterwards.
The undertaking was inspired by photographer Benny Lam’s bird’s-eye-view pictures of men and women living in small Hong Kong apartments.
“Following I saw these wonderful pictures, I was a tiny bit in shock. How can a particular person or a family reside in these tiny apartments?” mentioned Iranzo, who then started out searching into area-conserving solutions.
He realised that even though many designers had utilised floors and walls – even putting storage under floors and within walls – number of had manufactured use of the ceiling, regardless of it supplying the same footprint as the floor.
Iranzo aims to develop on his collection of 4 items to find more applications for his “straightforward idea that men and women can use in a lot of various scenarios”.
Progressive storage answers for space-poor city dwellers are becoming an increasingly well-known topic for the two younger designers and commercial firms. Final year British retailer Heal’s released a line of furniture aimed at this marketplace, following on from Ikea’s PS 2014 assortment.
