Created by German designer Tina Schmid, the Tilt furniture comprises rods with joints that allow them to rotate outwards and lock into position.

"With a simple movement, the graphic becomes a three-dimensional object," says Schmid. "The picture of a cube can be folded out as a table, the cuboid as a valet stand."

Schmid showed the pieces as part of the [D3] Contest for young designers at imm cologne last month, where she won the second prize of €2000.

    This seems absolutely amazing. I’m sure when I’ve worked it out it will be even more wonderful!

    I like it a lot. It could be a bit smaller and more refined.

    Like it; very Josef Albers.
