Our Favorite Eats of the Year
Our editors weigh in on their most satisfying dining experiences.
Think of a design week and you may envision impenetrable crowds and next-level noise. But that's not what Italian architect Beatrice Bonzanigo has in mind.
The designer has revealed the plans for Casa Ojalá, a tiny home with the potential to be the talk of Milan Design Week. While it won't necessarily be located in the remote regions it's intended for, consider it a mental vacation in the middle of one of those crowds; a moment to transport yourself to your tiny home dream location of choice.
The home is a mere 260-square-feet, but can be built anywhere. Not just that, but it can be assembled in 20 different set-ups, giving you unprecedented freedom that usually doesn't come with a micro home. According to Dezeen, the home accounts for two bedrooms, a kitchenette, a bathroom, living room, and a terrace.
The various layouts are made possible with a mechanical system made of pulleys, ropes, and cranks that work with the sliding walls and various partitions to accommodate the different blueprints.

While its first introduction will be in a crowded environment, the idea is that Casa Ojalá will be an off-the-grid unit. Along with the adjustable design, the home also collects rainwater and has its own septic tank, meaning you really can take it just about anywhere. Power from solar panels will drive all electrical needs in the home.
To see it a one-tenth scale model of the home, head to Milan Design Week between April 9 and 14.
