Origami you can sit on

If your tired of assembling crappy furniture from Ikea (it's amazing how much money you can make by leaving out one screw from each sofa kit), try these amazing laser-cut pieces from Ronen Kadushin , where you hand bend a flat piece of metal into a new piece.

Did you notice his 'copyrigbt': Visitors to this site are most welcome to download and use the designs. For Commercial contexts of using the designs, please contact the designer.

That is a refreshing attitude. He even has .DXF (Autocad) files for download.

While these are very cool looking pieces, they appear to be supremely uncomfortable for actually sitting upon: the sort of thing you put in your living room because it looks cool, not because it's usable as furniture.

(PS: I'm just fine with Ikea furniture, although I do make it a habit to check the parts in the box before I leave the store... their QC just plain stinks.)

I think Frank Lloyd Wright discovered that people will still buy cool-looking furniture, even if it does eventually call for the services of a Chiropractor.
