THE WORLD’S FIRST TRANSFORMING APARTMENT

The future has never looked cooler. A prototype for a revolutionary new kind of living space is now on display at the 100% Design exhibition in London. At first glance it’s small, but (taking queue’s from Hey Arnold!) the 860-square-foot room converts into four different spaces to maximize what would be the equivalent of a very small one-bedroom apartment.

The founder of Yotel, British entrepreneur Simon Woodroffe, spent $200,000 creating the Yo! Home prototype, but it’s unclear what it would cost for actual residents to buy or rent the apartment.

Check out more images of the “apartment of the future” after the jump:

Slide open a screen to the right of the kitchen for office space with a twist.  The desk folds out to become a guest bed.

Sliding open the doors on the floor of the shower reveals a hot tub.
