The tear-away credenza is the greatest piece of transformative furniture around. This piece of storage appears to be torn apart, but it is actually an ingenious design feature.

Made out of maple, birch and a mahogany veneer, this baby goes beyond being a statement piece, as it mixes awesomeness with practicality and functionality. Check out the gallery to see more of the tear-away credenza--just don't DIY one.

Implications - There continues to be a growing fascination with new products that appear old. Businesses that create vintage-like designs demonstrate to consumers that they appreciate tradition, and yet also embrace contemporary designs. A mix of tradition and contemporary is an excellent thing within businesses from all industries.
