The room in a box: A crate idea that cuts moving time and storage in half


There's a room in there? Casulo has everything needed to furnish a bedroom

Magicians are famous for their use of boxes, from sawing their lovely assistants in half to making themselves disappear.

But it may not take a magician or sorcery to furnish a room with just a box.

The Casulo is the brainchild of German designers Marcel Krings and Sebastian Mühlhäuser.

Thinking outside the box: You don't need tools to reassemble your furniture
The Casulo contains everything needed for a bedroom: the bed, a desk, shelves an armoire, and several units of storage.

The design duo came published the idea in 2007 in their dissertation at the Köln International School of Design in Cologne.

Calling it 'a new concept for mobile living,' they named their design Casulo, the Portuguese word for 'cocoon.'

It was designed with the goal easing the more frustrating phases of moving - time, transport and reassembling furniture.

Designers boast that it only takes seven minutes to assemble all the furniture

The developers promise that no tools are necessary for breaking down or reassembling the Casulo, making it as easy to move in as it is to move out..

From inside the box to a fully-furnished room, the job can be done in about seven minutes, as demonstrations show.

Coming together: The team behind Casulo says their design can save you time and money when you're moving into a new place

It can also store all of your bedroom furniture, in a fraction of the space.
Moving the Casulo, however, might be at least a two-person job, as each box weighs about 375 pounds.

All you need: Casulo comes with a bed, desk, shelves and storage space

But manufacturers are aiming to bring the weight down to 330 pounds.

The Casulo is not yet available in stores, but the team of Krings and Mühlhäuser is in talks to get it into production.

Casulo can store your bedroom furniture in a fraction of the space

And voila! In just seven minutes, your new bedroom is done
