The Origami Bench, designed by blackLAB architects inc., is clever seating that was created as part of a special exhibition at the 2014 Interior Design Show in Toronto. The design itself is fabricated from geometric-shaped panels of white laminate covered, baltic birch plywood that are connected with piano hinges. The origami inspired planes each fold together and lay firm against the tubular steel legs they rest upon, giving the look of folded paper.

I was wondering around New York City yesterday and walked pass the MoMA Design Store on Spring Street and decided to drop in since it has been a while. Of course the first item I see when I walk in is this beautiful lamp that is shaped like a book with its pages in an accordion-like fashion. Lo and behold, I was staring at a new edition to the store, Lumio, The Book Lamp. Be sure to check out the video below to see all the different ways you can use your Lumio.

Christian Fiebig is a german product designer that has created his reinterpretation of the chesterfield deep buttoned armchair by use of a computer program to reconstruct it entirely with polygonal faces. He then made this prototype come to life by rebuilding it with paper which helped him to realize it as a full scale model. He is currently still working on the development of the chair as a functional piece.
Mathias Bengtsson was born in Copenhagen and is well known for his modern aesthetics in furniture design that is both visually striking and technically innovative. The more familiar forms he works with are that of aluminum, acrylic and plywood.
Andrej Čverha of Hangar Design Forge designed the TAU speakers which are made from recycled cardboard and paper finished in epoxy. The shapes themselves were an exploratory exercise in finding the simplest form that provides maximum audio fidelity. The result is an organic form suspended on rods designed to hide the cables which amplify it's elegance.
