Oneness by Kyuhyung Cho and Hironori Tsukue

Designers Kyuhyung Cho and Hironori Tsukue have created tables and chairs that clip together to form an assortment of shelving units.

Benches, stacks of shelves or huge storage systems can be created using combinations of upright and flipped-over items in the Oneness collection by Cho and Tsukue.

The simple pieces are attached by inserting black plastic fasteners into holes at each corner.

The lower half of the seats are the same as the tables, with legs that taper from the joints.

Finnish birch plywood pieces can be left untreated or stained a darker colour.

    I usually love a multifunctional design but I’m not convinced by this one at all. In shelving mode it just looks like some chairs piled up on top of each other – which it is!

    • Paul

      I think that making the shelf look like a piled chairs is their intention.

        Yes it’s their intention and I don’t think its that persuasive, honestly.

        • Dan

          Yes, if it is just a shelf that looks like piled chairs, but the form is based on multifunctional purposes: using as chairs and a table or a shelf. It make sense to me.

    Interesting. The chairs look very much like my design from the 2006 ICFF in NYC: http://kubagon.com/chair%20that.html

      Yeah, so true, it´s also a wooden chair.

  • Hannah

    I LOVE THIS! Simple, functional and good looking. Wish it was my idea.
