Is it a book ? Is it furniture ? No, it is Bookniture ! This nifty interior eye-catcher unfolds itself from a book into a full fledged design element. Ok, what’s so cool about this Kickstarter project ? Well, basically it seems a fold-away form of furniture made of carefully constructed cardboard. But it’s much more than that. When closed you can put the Bookniture up on a large bookshelf (just like a book) and when opened and folded, turn it into a little table or stool (the function is for you to choose according to your mood). According to its makers , it should be able to support up to 375 lbs (which is roughly 170 kilograms).

The Super Honeycomb structure of Bookniture is made of kraft paper from the USA. It has superior strength and excellent resistance to moisture. What’s even more special is its portability. You can take it with you on a picnic to sit on it or as a handy picnic table to name a few possibilities. The Bookniture elements (in different colour variations) come with different vividly coloured felt tops to make your table or stool experience complete. Great stuff. Check it out at Kickstarter.
