Ax sheets (A3, A4, A5, etc) have “Golden Ratio” that promotes productivity by keeping the dimensions always (approximately) in the same ratio of width:length when they are folded in half.

Inspired by these Ax sheets, we assigned fresh sculpture of distinctive ratio to furniture, which makes the furniture economical by saving raw materials.

Since An Furniture also can be rearranged and relocated to a closet, a bookshelf, a storage cabinet and a drawer by a straightforward process, there would be no furniture better than this for single-person households.

  • Redfern

    Suspiciously similar to A-series storage by hundredstensunits….

  • Good old golden ratio at it again – wicked!

  • Where do people get the idea that A- paper follows the golden ratio? A-sized paper uses a ratio of √2, people – 1.414, NOT 1.618.

    • josh

      Indeed. It's not the golden ratio. sloppy Dezeen.

    There have been a number of projects inspired by A series of paper dimensions. It just so happens KAMKAM went the same direction as Hundreds Tens Units. HTU weren't the first, and KAMKAM won't be the last.

    somebody should write a book (in A4 format :) about these ideas. There is enough material for this.

  • Kat

    lovely piece(s) regardless of it A4ness or not.
    Just lovely

  • Felix

    Nice product.

    Love the transformation of the top two boxes into a light. They've dishonestly hidden the cable in the photos though.

    Great that they've shown us a photo of the fixings at the back. Why aren't the cabinets attached to the table base in the same way?

    Very clunky hinges look out of proportion on the smaller cabinets. If they sorted that out it'd be perfect.

  • Point me in the direction to get one of these! Perfection.
