shin yamashita: land peel

‘land peel’

‘land peel’ is a furniture developed by japanese industrial design student shin yamashita from the kyoto institute of technology. it is a flat three piece mat set from which a table, seat or rest can be made simply by lifting the panels. when done using, the furniture can be discreetly tucked away.

the flexibility of the lounge floor mat makes it ideal for all leisurely activities such as watching television, studying, lying down, or reading a book.

  • wow nice idea

  • wow, this is what gets me going in the day. someone taking an existing precedent and pushing it conceptually. I love the play on the traditional tatami mat proportions and how the scale is reconfigured based on utility. lovely

  • Yep, imageo putting your sandwich on top of the table that has been swimming in floor dust just 5 minutes ago. Bon appetite đŸ™‚
