Their debut design, the Floyd Leg, is a steel clamp-on support that can turn just about any flat surface into a table. "The idea was born out of...

Madrid architect Camino Alonso compares her 290-square-foot prefab house to a Monopoly game piece. Designed for two—and portable, no less—it's so cleverly laid out that there's plenty of storage.
