Operio shape-changing furniture by Bina Baitel takes a cue from Pharrell’s hat

Bina Baitel, an award-winning French designer tried her hand in different disciplines including art, furniture, architecture, lighting, space installation and other consumer goods. One of her sublime creation named Confluentia which is a traditional craft of Aubusson tapestry has been inscribed on the representative list of the ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity’ directed by UNESCO in 2009. Although all her works are great piece of art, but have a look over Operio, a collection of polymorphic storage units that allow users to arrange things like books in different shapes, creating a different piece every time.

After getting inspiration from Pharrell’s hat of the famous novel ‘The Little Prince’ by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, she used cotton fabric padding to allow users to create different kinds of storage configurations with ease. Its fabric padded cover sits over the wooden frame and there are steel bookends to support things (books) at the end. Various arrangements of things can be created with the padding cover. It can be used as a bookshelf, sideboard, console or a bedside table.  

Surely, it is an innovative concept to use fabric padding for creating a shape-changing storage piece. Every time you put in or take out books, it becomes a unique décor piece. It is a great furniture accessory for study rooms of your creative little ones.
