Sit on your art: 2D to 3D furniture

From Standing Room Only, 12:50 pm on 12 June 2016

You see some attractive objects hanging on an apartment wall, and assume they're purely ornamental. But what's this? Your host is taking the artwork down, and folding this two dimensional object into a three dimensional chair.

This not your nana's stripy, red and white folding deck chair. While they're folded up the chair or table resembles a picture of furniture, as if photographed or drawn from an angle.

The creator of these 2D to 3D furniture designs is Korean-born Jongha Choi who made them for his thesis at Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands.
