Lift (Space-Saving Sliding Kitchen Cabinet System) by Michel Cornu

I love how dynamic this is, a very fun, clever concept. I think it is awesome. But can someone explain how it actually saves space? The same amount of space is used, as you couldn't really do anything with the space that isn't being used. Could you? When everything is "away" what do you do with the stop space? Any ideas? I hope they come up with many different styles.
