Origami Furniture

Clearly others have been inspired by the art of paper folding. There are many designs in the furniture area that are either large scale versions of origami or use some of the geometric design aspects as an inspiration. Here are a few interesting examples.

Ori Stool by Jakub Piotr Kalinowski via designtosell

Although called a stool I really see this as a great contemporary solution to nesting tables.

The Bloom Series by Christina Waterson includes a stool/magazine rack combo.

Also online are resources and how-to instructions for creating your own cardboard origami furniture. Go to for additional information and photos of DIY furniture.
