'On Ne Sais Jamais,' a restaurant and cafe in Pangyo-dong, South Korea, uses an inventive material for the bulk of its furnishings. Rather than having tables, chairs and benches made from wood, metal or plastic, On Ne Sais Jamais' furniture is made primarily out of stacked layers of felt.
Though felt is typically used in two dimensional ways -- for instance, as the exterior layer of upholstery -- stacking and cutting felt can turn it into a surprisingly strong yet supple material. The entirety of On Ne Sais Jamais' seating options are made out of felt and the cafe's tables are made from felt but for the glass tabletops -- glass is a more convenient and hygienic material when it comes to dining.
