The Geometry of Living

Well it’s official, cubes-that-turn-into-things is officially a trend. Maybe designers are inspired by last years Transformers movie, or the Borg on Star Trek, but these squared squares just keep on coming. The latest is by designer Naho Matsuno called “Cube 6.” Made from birch plywood and maple, this cube unfolds into six tiny stools that are perfect for those impromptu games of musical chairs with Danny Devito, Tom Cruise, Kylie Minogue, Gandhi, Toulouse-Lautrec and my attention span(all short things…get it?). Matsuno showed this project at the Salone Satellite at the Milan furniture fair.

    Really clever idea but once you take the four tables apart for use, what’s the point of putting them back together? Maybe you can work that idea into stools that you can bring out for a bunch of guests and then stash them away as a single table once the party’s over.

      Nevermind, it’s not four it’s six and they’re already stools. My mistake.

    I bet that when you saw the first picture you don’t even imagined that there could be 6 chairs.

  • pierre says:

    nice BUT is that 6 chairs? or 6 tables? What the meaning to have 6 tables without chair (and reciprocally!)

  • zuy says:
