Pop-Up Office

We at Popular Kinetics have always known pop-ups can have a life outside the book, and we often look at examples of folding furniture and collapsible objects for inspiration. Here the process of finding inspiration is reversed, with two Austria artists, Liddy Scheffkencht and Armin B. Wagner, seeing the pop-up for its architectural potential. They’ve created a life-sized pop-up office desk and chair that conveniently collapse for storage when not in use. Featured in Dwell Magazine’s June 2010 email newsletter, we hope this motivates more architects and designers to discover the beauty of paper-engineered mechanics when looking for design ideas.
