Check out this video to see some amazingly creative furniture designed by Dutch designer Robert van Embricqs.
Created using just a single piece of bamboo and strategically cut and fit together, each piece transforms from a flat slab of wood into a functional piece of furniture.
What else could there be in the future?
It is a great example of how someone uses the constraints of his materials to come up with novel new solutions.
Similarly, check out this other video about a new folding design for the simple cabinet:
Artist Sebastian Errazuriz created the Wave Cabinet as a way to invite people to “look at one of the simplest forms of furniture design and to forget that we’re talking about furniture.”
It just goes to show that sometimes even the most mundane items can be reinterpreted with a little imagination.
