A Carpet That Transforms Into Furniture

submitted on April 3, 2010 by YanBz in "Products / Gadgets"
My friend forwarded this to me today. Very interesting concept. Should be inexpensive as well, cheaper than buying furniture anyway



By necessity, the Japanese have an intuition for space-saving design that shines in their products and architecture. But this concept might be one of the cleverest we've ever seen. Created by Shin Yamashita, a student at the Kyoto Institute of Technology, Land Peel is a foam floor covering which also has panels that flip up and fold, to become any sort of furniture you might need: From a table, to a backrest, to a drink tray, to a footrest, to a pillow

    Good idea for people in some parts of Asia. I have a relative living in Japan and he complains about how small his apartment is all the time.
