BOOKNITURE flips from book to furniture in less than a second

 

BOOKNITURE has released the ‘concrete gray special edition’ of their origami structure that can transform its shape from that of a book into a piece of furniture in just a flip. the cover of this edition brings up the beauty of concrete texture. created by mike mak, a hong kong-based designer, BOOKNITURE is a great portable furniture that is perfect for our contemporary and compact living styles; it’s easy to store away when not in use, as you can slide it in amongst other books on a bookshelf.

underneath the cover, BOOKNITURE has a durable kraft paper panel with an origami structure that makes it lightweight, weighing only 1.2kg. but so strong that it can hold a withstand of extreme weight up to 900kg. stack it up and make a table and chair set; add w old board on top of two of them and make a bench; stack a few layers more and it becomes a shelf. possibilities with BOOKNITURE are endless and can be even used outdoors.
