BOOKNITURE IS SPECIAL

BOOKNITURE combines advanced honeycomb paper structure with traditional craft of book-binding.

The binding is performed in a factory which specializes in traditional book assembly. Having spent months for the development of optimal structure, we finally produced these prototypes as shown here. Now we are ready to move on to mass production!

We need your support in order to get enough fundings for tooling and molds as well as meeting the MOQ (minimum order quantity) and other requirements for mass production. 

THE STORY OF BOOKNITURE

As a designer based in one of the most densely populated city. Living and working space here is extremely limited. Everybody would love to ( and have to ) utilize their home and make good use of every inch of the space.

A few years ago attending a furniture fair, I was given a honeycomb board sample and was amazed by the strength and load capacity of this structure. This structure is widely used in the furniture industry composite boards for shelves and tables. I took this sample back as a decor on my bookcase...

I love having friends at my place, but have never had enough seats for everyone. My guests and I would always end up just sitting on the floor. I really wanted a kind of seat that doesn't take up any floor space when I don’t need it. Is that even possible? One day however, the empty space on my bookcase and the honeycomb sample caught my eyes. Then came the spark of a new idea: BOOKNITURE!

 
I want something different from traditional folding chairs and tables. It has to look natural and fit in the living environment, comfortable to sit on, invisible when storedI want something different from traditional folding chairs and tables.

SUPER STRONG YET HIGHLY EXTENSIBLE HONEYCOMB STRUCTURE

After the initial idea of Bookniture, the journey of creating the perfect furniture piece began. Different materials were studied and structural design were developed. All over the world the right type of paper for the mass production of honeycomb structure was sourced and identified. The specific machine, different toolings, and the dimension of the honeycomb structure were all carefully managed. Our final sample is now a truly impressive piece combining strength, flexibility and portability all into one.

The Super Honeycomb is made of kraft paper from the USA. It has superior strength and excellent resistance to moisture. Our tests show that with our engineered structure, it could withstand more than 100 times of its own weight. It is also a highly extendable structure. It expands 14 times compared to the original volume when it's unfolded.
