A wave of "transforming" furniture has recently taken the architecture and design world by storm, and Naihan Li is building atop that pattern of morphing interior items.
Though at first glance, Naihan's display room is occupied only by innocuous crates -- each, however, is curiously outfitted with rolling wheels and built-in handles. Within moments, the collection of boring boxes is transformed into a stylish, minimal lounge, complete with couches, an entertainment center, study space and even some shrubbery. Rearranging the area is made effortless by the integrated wheels and the light weight of the unfinished timber; plus, locking mechanisms prevent any of the boxes from accidentally opening. Uncomplicated, modular and fun, Naihan Li's designs made a splash at the recent Beijing Design Week. You might suggest lightweight steel as opposed to dry wood -- it'd be a shame for one's living room to suddenly vanish in a cloud of smoke.
