he fusion armchair, inspired by the art of origami, has a unique sculptural look and a plump seat just waiting to give you a hug. Japanese studio Nendo has designed a collection of furniture and homeware for BoConcept, which include Fusion Chair. Fusion is a thirteen-piece collection of furniture and housewares, designed for Danish furniture maker BoConcept. Like the collection’s name suggests, we wanted to create new functions and visual effects by fusing two different elements.

Our first idea was to use origami, the traditional Japanese art of bending a two-dimensional sheet of paper to make a three-dimensional object. As one way to mix two and three dimensions into a new form, we transferred origami folds onto the exterior surface of a set of cups as a pattern, and drew the origami animals that result from each set of folds inside the mug.

Squirrels and penguins appear as people drink, translating abstract fold patterns into recognisable form. Then we applied the same design to plates, trays, cushions and carpets.

    Sometimes I wonder if I really can. But then I think to myself, maybe I can’t. But if I could, that would be good. Maybe it’s all a lie?
