It might look like a book, but if you tried to read it, you'd be disappointed. That's because it's really a piece of multifunctional furniture. Bookniture is 'advanced honeycomb paper structure[s]' that open up to create extra seating (they hold up to 375lbs) , end tables, coffee tables, and the like.
They even stack, so you can pop one atop another and fashion a work table. Or open one on your desk to create a standing desk.
The designer of Bookniture is Mike Mak, and when he started his Bookniture project on Kickstarter, he hoped to reach a goal of $50,000 in pledges to meet the requirements of mass production. As of today, 2,990 backers have promised no less than $314,808, and there's still a month to go in the funding period. Based on its Kickstarter success, Bookniture should have no problem shipping their first units in Spring 2015 as promised.
