Belgian designer Xavier Bonte set himself the challenge of building a household object that would be both a work of art, and a useful, compact device for urban living.
Inspired by a dream about a cloud, he developed his The Sky Is The Limit kitchen island pod together with the firm HI-MACS.
It was a big draw at the 100% Design Festival, where it was highlighted as one of the top 20 designs to watch.
The BBC's technology reporter Dougal Shaw took a tour of the pod.
