A Hong Kong-based designer has launched a revolutionary book that transforms into a piece of furniture.
近日,一名香港设计师推出了一项革新发明——可以变成家具的书。

The unique book-shaped creation – called Bookniture – can be unfolded to become a chair or small table.
这项独一无二的发明被称为“书家具”,外形酷似书本,可以展开变成椅子或小桌子。

Made from fully-recyclable kraft paper, the book transforms into furniture in ‘a blink of an eye’.

People can either carry it around for a portable chair, or can store it in their homes to use as extra furniture.
人们可以把它带在身边当做便携式椅子,也可以放在家里当做家具。

Designer Mike Mak, 30, came up with the idea after never having enough seats for his friends at his home in Hong Kong.
设计师麦克·麦30岁,他想到这个点子是因为他在香港的家里从来没有足够的座位来招待朋友。

‘I love having friends at my place, but I have never had enough seats for everyone – we would always end up just sitting on the floor.
“我喜欢朋友来我家玩,但是家里从来没有足够的座位,于是我们经常坐在地板上。”

‘I really wanted a seat that didn’t take up any floor space when I don’t need it.
“我真的很想要一种座位,我不用它的时候它也不会占用地板空间。

‘One day, however, the empty space on my bookcase drew my attention. Then came the spark of a new idea – Bookniture – furniture hidden in a book.
“一天,我书架上的空间引起了我的注意。我突发奇想,想发明一种‘书家具’ ——隐藏在书里的家具。”

“打开这本书时,它会瞬间变成多功能家具。我想这是世界上唯一一种用书做成的凳子或桌子。”
