3D printing technology has encouraged designers to be more experimental with their creations, which is exactly what TAKT Project has made its mission statement--or so it appears. TAKT Project mass produces abstract modules that creatively and cleverly converts existing furniture pieces into other designs. For instance, four chairs come together to become a table while a clock can be suspended from the ceiling.

TAKT Project is a Tokyo-based company, which teamed up with Japanese start-up WHILL to create this quirky line of 3D printed products. The company states, "Just like a ‘sampling techniques’ in music industry which create new tracks by quoting a track or sound in the past, we can create original products by quoting a ready-made product, and adding pieces made by 3D printer." Rethinking ordinary objects is always a fun endeavor.
