How to maximize the functionality of a studio apartment!

Minimal USA has shown the flexibility of its products, designing the kitchen and the wardrobe for a studio in Columbus Circle area and, at the same time, has proved once again that luxury not only belongs to big spaces.

In this 650 square feet studio, Minimal USA has designed its tiny kitchen of 27 square feet and the closets of 16 square feet, whilst Studio Bichara, the Italian interior design company that partnered with Minimal USA for completing the project, has developed the design of the bedroom area and the living room.

The kitchen features glossy white lacquer cabinets and doors, while the countertop is made of black absolute Caeserstone. The black glass mosaic backsplash completes the elegance of the design creating silver reflections. The fluidity of the design keeps on the left side of this tiny kitchen thanks to the glass oven put at the same height of the backsplash and the paneled refrigeration column closes the space.

At the opposite side of the kitchen, closed to the entrance of the studio, Minimal USA designed the closet. These doors in glossy white lacquer, not only are a sleek solution, but are also functional, since they can slide sideway, creating light plays that give depth to the small area that takes to the bathroom.

Studio Bichara has designed the rest of the studio, creating special glass doors that slide all over the length of it, becoming doors for the closet area and for the kitchen when opened and doors for the central boiserie when closed. The Italian interior design company has also designed a turning system that allow guest to comfortably watch television both from the couch and from the bed.
