The Bookniture came to be when designer Mike Mak came upon the idea of using honeycomb board for creating a piece of furniture. He was amazed by the strength and load capacity of this lightweight and cheap material. His creation has a multitude of uses from being a stool to a side table to a footstool to an elevated platform that transforms your standard table into a standing table.
However, the most unique feature about the Bookniture is the fact that it can be collapsed down to something no larger than a coffee table book. If you haven’t figure it out yet, that is how it got its name. The stool/table measures 13.5 inches tall and 14 inches in diameter. In book form, it measures 13″ h x 7″ w x 1.5″ d. It is a hefty volume but still very much portable. If you live in a tiny apartment, you will no doubt understand the immense benefits of a piece of furniture that can be transformed into a book.
With the Bookniture, having enough seats for all your guests is no longer a problem. Not when you can store extra seats on your bookshelf. Your guests no longer have to seat on the floor. Not only does it provide instant seats for your guests but its unique patent pending origami structure can be considered a work of art.
If you can’t tell the difference between a Picasso and a car crash, you can at least tell the art-worthiness of the Bookniture by the fact that it is sold at the MoMA Design Store. The designer has also made sure that it even looks good in book form when sitting on the shelf.
If you have “weight-challenged” guests and you are worried about the durability of your cardboard furniture, you can rest assured as the Bookniture is able to support half a ton of weight. For seating comfort, a double-sided felt seat pad is included.
