Video: LifeEdited on “This Could Be Big”

The other day Bill Weir from ABC/Yahoo News stopped by to tour the LifeEdited apartment as part of his “This Could Be Big” program. While we take gentle exception with the conditional “could”–and “big” for that matter–the video beautifully shows the apartment in its various iterations.

Weir called the apartment “A cutting edge template for anybody who wants to simplify their life without giving up style,” and said the apartment.” We agree.

He did a great job of creating context for LifeEdited in general–mentioning not only the apartment, but product design and larger developments that support this way of life.

Check out the video and let us know what you think in our comment section.

  • Love it! Makes perfect sense!  why have a bedroom which sits vacant all day, for all that you do in is sleep and store clothes….why not integrate into your living space which doesn’t get used after night.  The tricky part would be living with children but i’ve seen it done, so it’s definitively do-able.

  • I love it and want to move in! Once the price comes down I’m sure many could use this. It would be difficult for someone with kids, though. I’d love to see what you could do with a small house with three young kids in it (quiet room for baby, space to play for older kids, etc).

    Would love to know more details about what sort of tracks were used on the floor, and how the electric cabling is run to the moving cabinet

    • hey dave,
      the track was made by a company called modern office systems. there is no “third rail”–there’s an extension cord on a coil that moves with the wall which can be unplugged. it’s not the most elegant solution, but works well enough.
