BloomFrame, designed by Amsterdam-based Hofman Dujardin Architects, is the coolest thing since slicest bread. Essentially it is a window frame that transforms into a balcony with a flip of a switch. In addition to at least five other awards, the design won the Wallpaper* Design Award 2009 in the most life-enhancing category, which is well deserved. If you live in a compact city apartment, it allows you to step outside and enjoy your own private outdoor space. It's available in a range of sizes, materials, and colors to be customized to your builiding. The only problem I see with it is that when the balcony opens, it lets outdoor air (and bugs) into your apartment. Watch the video! The music is pretty funny!
