The incredible Yuya Ushida sofa is named sofa_XXXX. The German-based designer created the sofa to be expandable and retractable, so it can also be used as a chair. The seating piece is made out of 8,000 chopsticks!

Rings and joints are used to connect chopsticks to each other and aid in the furniture’s flexibility. After three months, the Yuya Ushida sofa was complete and ready to use. This innovative piece of seating can hold the weight of three average full-grown people as well.
