The ZIP:PER Collection is essentially a set of playful sculptures that have the added benefits of functional furnishings. Their forms alone are enough to make them utterly charming items for the bedroom, the family room or the dining room.

Korea's THE:ZOOM studio whimsically alludes to the relationship between fashion design and furniture, yet it does so in a rather fantastical way. The image of the zipper fastener was magnified, applied and distorted against the shapes of the bookcase, the shelf, the sideboard and the armchair. Serrated contours seem to split at the seams as exaggerated toothy edges that are joined by looped pulls. The ZIP:PER Collection opens up as a fun storage solution, likely best appreciated by younger and more imaginative users. Stats for Toothy Interior Furnishings Trending: Older & Mild
