Bookniture: Sleek tome folds out into multipurpose furniture

Books being used as furniture clearly depicts that you’re a bibliophile with massive collection of books, which are even utilized for other household purposes as well. But, how about a single book that can be transformed into multipurpose furniture? Well, Hong Kong-based designer Mike Mak has actually made that possible all thanks to the Bookniture– a book that unfolds to multifunctional furniture.

Bookniture is not really made from books; in fact it is constructed from collapsible paper honeycomb that is sturdy enough to hold objects more than 100 times of its own weight. For transforming it into a mirco-furniture unit, all you need to do is just unfold its strap and open the book to form a circular table. This circular table can be utilized for endless possibilities such as stool, foot rest, bed-side table, table, standing desk, table for outdoor picnics and many more.

You can even stack multiple Booknitures to form a desk or shelf, moreover two Booknitures can be combined with wooden board to form a bench. After use, it can be collapsed back into a book to be stored on bookshelf. Due to its ultra-thin shape, you can carry it in your handbag to any outdoor location to enjoy picnic with more comfort.

Currently the project is seeking funds for $50,000 on crowdfunding website Kickstarter and has successfully surpassed its target. For an bidding at an early bird price of about $60, even you can get yourself one Bookniture piece in leather black or field brown with a light gray strap. As of now, check out the video and images given below to find out more uses of the micro-furniture.
