Furniture That Goes From 2D to 3D
View Slideshow

With smaller living spaces on the rise, it’s no surprise that designers are becoming more clever with how they design furniture to fill those shrinking spaces. Eindhoven-based Korean designer Jongha Choi created a collection of stools and benches that go from flat, two-dimensional wall art to three-dimensional furniture that actually functions.

Called De-dimension _ From 2D to 3D, Choi designed a folding mechanism that allowed the pieces to fold flat but to also bear the weight of a human when locked into place. Inspiration for the mechanism came from researching pop-up books to see how they function.
