When I say “Furniture in a book”, your mind would probably think that the book in question was about furniture. However, Bookniture is way more literal than that! It literally is a book that opens up to become furniture!
Relying on folded paper’s ability to withstand large amounts of compressive stress against its thickness, the Bookniture literally comes as thick as a coffee-table book and as light as one too. It contains paper pages on the inside that are honeycombed together, and opens up like a regular book would. After opening the book up, just lock the covers to each other and place a circular mat on top and you have yourself an Ottoman Stool, or even a rather nifty side-table that can take up to 1100 kgs (2400 pounds) of load without breaking a sweat!
Just the most amazing product for picnics (forget those picnic mats!), or travel, or even in the most minimal-loving home/office, the Bookniture is undeniably stylish (it has a place in the Museum of Modern Art, btw!), supremely functional, and fits like a charm in any bookshelf! You could literally fill your bookshelf with these! Would that count as furniture-ception though?
