RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
According to United Nations, 54% of the world’s overall population was urban population in 2014; in 2050, urban population would rise to 66% of the world’s overall population. In other words, as urban population increases across the world, residences in cities are shrinking in order to fulfil the demand.

CHALLENGE:
The furniture is highly responsible to improve the efficiency in space-usage in small properties, especially 1-bedroom flats and studios. Every inch should be used competently and wisely. Thus, the usage of space at the corridor is crucial.
