Transformative Furniture by Akemi Tanaka

01Dec06

I’m a veritable addict for convertible, collapsible, multifunctional pieces (like the modern murphy beds we all went crazy for last month). So falling in love with designer Akemi Tanaka’s furniture collection was inevitable:

The Tagei is available only through the designer. Personally I love the striped fabric she’s chosen for upholstery, but it can be upholstered using other custom fabrics if you request it.

And a glimpse of Akemi Tanaka’s Futaba coffee table-loveseat that debuted last year:

The Fab Factor: Akemi Takana’s collection is hand-crafted from renewable bamboo plywood and finished off with an eco-friendly non-voc danish oil. The three standard upholstery fabric options are sustainable too. An elegant example of space-saving, versatile design.
