Multifunctional and very space-saving, Bookniture is a smart furniture piece hidden in a notebook cover. Visualized by Hong Long-based designer Mike Mak, the project is extraordinarily practical: it can be a standing work desk, a nightstand and a foot rest. In addition, you may use it as an outside stool or add a wood board on top of two Bookfurnitures and produce a bench. The finest part, however, is its capability to fold back into a notebook, making it comfortable to carry around from place to place and keep it in style. For a better understanding of the concept, you can look at the official Kickstarter campaign video below:

The Bookniture scheme is said to merge between classic craft of bookbinding with advanced Origami Structure: “Varying materials were learned and structural design were developed. All type of paper over the world for the mass production of origami structure was identified and sourced. The different toolings, specific machine, and the measurements of the origami structure were all carefully handled. Our final sample is now a truly impressive piece combining strength, flexibility and portability all into one.” For extra comfort and durability, Bookniture also has a colour that is double felt top with laser engraving, that can be used as a table top. Find the combo fascinating?
