Bentu Design has come up with a set of furniture that doesn't look all that comfortable to sit on, but it's certainly modern.
The pieces are called Zhi and Kou, which when translated into Chinese characters actually look like the final pieces. This is where the artist found inspiration, and translated it into a working furniture design (although most likely not the most comfortable)! One piece even takes on the frame of an aged TV, with the box part on top and four legs attached underneath. The furniture can be used as shelving, a table or even seating, making it a multipurpose design.
Various colors are available for the legs, so that people can match them to their personal preference.
