Designer creates furniture hidden in a book


Hong Kong designer Mike Mak has created a new type of furniture that can be folded up to look like a book. What’s it called? Bookniture. If you give more than $80 to the Kickstarter (which has raised over $300,000) a piece of Bookniture can be yours. Once you are finished using it as a side table or seat, it can go back on the shelf.
