Korean design duo THE:Zoom is behind this clever series of furniture called Project [ZIP:PER] that was inspired by, you guessed it, zippers.

They took your everyday zipper that’s normally seen sewn into fabric and incorporated the idea of it into these playful pieces of furniture. The stark white color of each piece let’s the quirky form shine through with the illusion that each design is being zipped (or unzipped) up.

The collection includes a chair, bookcase, and two shelves.
