Space Saving Origami "Turniture"- Furniture that Transforms!

 FIVE GREAT EXAMPLES OF SPACE SAVING and/or DOUBLE-USAGE FURNITURE FOR YOUR APARTMENT, TINY HOME, OR CABIN....

    Sorry about being MIA for a day or two, but a weekend of building a clubhouse, working with a client on another tree house project I might be taking on, and working on more blueprints for the tiny guest house that attendees will be building at our 3 day Tiny House-Building Workshops in Wilmington, NC (April 26th-28th- kidcedar at gmail.com for info), had me swamped.
    Anyway, here are a few videos on "Turniture", or transforming furniture, that I thought were interesting. Check 'em out and let me know your thoughts....

1. 'BED TURNS INTO A CHAIR"- this one's a little flimsy looking, but certainly a inventive step in some potentially right direction....this guys also has to be a MASTER at origami to have even come up with something like this.

 

2. "SOMNYS TRANSFORMER FURNITURE"- A COFFEE TABLE THAT TURNS INTO A BED.... A short video, and its computer generated, but a decent idea....


3. FOLDING CHAIR AND OTTOMAN- transforming plywood flat pack. I can't say that I feel that this one looks incredibly comfortable, but its ingenious.


4. FOLDING BENCH- two park benches and a picnic table in one- fairly simple, and versatile.


5. BERG FURNITURE TRANSFORMING BUNK BED- I'm sure this is INSANELY expensive, but pretty amazing!
