Self assembling furniture

Ikea has nothing on this. Flat pack furniture that basically builds itself. Somehow, Wood-Skin, the company behind this, manages to create that feeling that magic really does exist.

The furniture uses a special layer of synthetic textiles that fold themselves into shape. The wood itself has creases in it that act as hinges and basically dictate what shape will eventually be realised.

This is amazing – in small living spaces, this kind of thing could be a miracle – Imagine popping up your dining table just before dinner and when you’re done, flattening it out again and just storing it in a cupboard or flat up against a wall.
