We weren’t quite sure what was going on here until we saw a few different angles of Japanese design studio YOY’s latest ‘canvas,’ two-dimensional-looking hanging furniture pieces. Each piece is constructed out of wood and aluminum and then covered with screen-printed elastic fabric. The ‘canvas’ is then leaned against a wall and stretches when weight is applied to accommodate the user.

Vegetarians of the world rejoice — the world’s first TOFU chair is here! Designed by Leonardo Talarico, the Tofu Chair lives up to its name and is made entirely from tasty soy bean curd. Using portion-sized chunks of bean curd, Talarico made a sturdy seat by dehydrating the tofu blocks, then submitting them to a dose of thermal shock to create a truly unique chair fit for the king, or queen, of vegetarians.

Wanmokku is a minimal design created by Japan-based Torafu Architects. The initial inspiration for the design came from an informal encounter with a Jack Russell Terrier. Torafu created a furniture piece which would use the owner’s old clothes as a foundation for where a dog could play and rest. The elastic nature of the clothes forms a hammock like surface when attached to the frame. Depending on the season, the user can also adjust the material of the clothing according to the temperature!

Rocking-Knit by Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex modifies a rocking chair to offer “productive moments of relaxation.” The rocking motion of the chair causes gears to turn, pulling yarn from a spool at the base up into the top area where it’s slowly knitted into a red beanie cap. Over time the knitted creation begins to drop down toward the user’s face. The machine is currently being shown as part of the University of Art and Design Lausanne’s Low-Tech Factory exhibition in Langenthal, Switzerland.
