Really, really flat-packed furniture

Designer Joost van Bleiswijk makes everything flat. He designs components on a computer and then essentially laser cuts them out and folds them together into full-sized candelabras, clocks, and even this insane fireplace thing. Everything is made of stainless steel.

It kind of reminds me of Ponoko but clearly this guy has taken it to a whole other level. There’s an altar in that fireplace thing, for Prometheus’ sake.
