Tyko is inspired by foldable things, the relationship between two dimensional and three dimensional, huts and personal spheres. Sometimes, both kids and grown ups, needs a personal room or a hidden corner where they can be left alone and rest. Tyko is such a place. Depending on how the furniture is used, Tyko can also be a sociable furniture that creates room for people to get together. The user can stay in the furniture and read a magazine, play games, listen to music or look at a fairy tale book. Tyko is a flexible furniture, that can be opened easily and be sealed up by a folding system that reminded by origami. When it is not being used it can be stored folded up occupying little room.
