Book Furniture


A designer in Hong Kong has developed a book-based furniture system. Bookniture, as creator Mike Mak has called it, folds neatly into a book when not in use, but open it up and the unique honeycomb shape creates a stool, a seat, a nightstand, or a table. The project is still in the Kickstarter phase, but it has already surpassed its funding goal.
