Space Saving Wall Mounted Table: The Spacebox by Calligaris


This wall mounted table called the Spacebox by Calligaris is a great space saver. It works in kitchens, studies and pretty much any other rooms too. It would even be great for business and art spaces too.

I found it to be an amazing design for the inside of a tiny house or cabin because you can use it in the living room to dine, work, study or write. So it works great in any small space like a micro apartment, too.

In most normal homes it would also work in a hallway, sitting room, den or living room. It’s great for storage, too, because of all the shelves. So when you’re done using everything it has its place and you can easily fold the table down so you can have more available and usable floor space. See it in action, and then out of action, below:





How would you use one of these wonderful little space boxes to make more out of your space? Or, better yet, would you take this design as inspiration and build your own version of it yourself? Whatever your plans, we’d love to read them if you’d be willing to share in the comments below. Thanks!

Spacebox Prefab Stackable Tiny Houses


The Spacebox are prefabricated stackable tiny houses that are fast, affordable and flexible because they can be stacked, as you’ll see, in a variety of ways vertically or horizontally.

The company was founded in 1998 by Mart de Jong with the concept of these 258 square foot structures that are innovative and ultra lightweight.


Currently there are more than 1,000 Spacebox units implemented throughout The Netherlands. The company has also provided affordable housing in South Africa through their Homes4All program.

Spacebox does its own research to find new technologies, materials and production methods to find better ways to create affordable prefab structures to serve temporary problems and shortages in housing.


These units work for urban areas, student housing, temporary worker housing, creation of temporary hotels, and much more. The materials used to build the structures are composite materials which comprise of 5 other materials that help make each structure fire resistant, lightweight and well insulated. And, as you see in the photos here, they’re available in several colors.


Since Spacebox structures can be stacked wide and tall there are so many configurations and this allows them to work well in urban areas too where space is limited.


The company not only does its own research but it also makes each unit from start to finish in the factory so this means they can produce and put together up to 10 units per day. That’s the power of prefab!
