Designer yuya ushida built this transformer sofa, that extends from chair width to full three person sofa, out of eight thousand chopsticks, cut into four lengths and fastened with rings and joints. It took him three months.

he writes:

Whenever I see it the beauty of the simple geometrical structure and its repetition always fascinates me.

SOFA_XXXX is made of just 4 different lengths of sticks, rings and joints. the parts on their own don't seem to be special, but when put together in a regular pattern their beauty appears.


The designer documents it wonderfully on his website, showing both the sofa and the thought process and manufacturing process behind it.
