Aside from putting together those IKEA bookcases, when was the last time you were involved in the making of your home’s furnishings? The Playtime Collection from Zhang & Thonsgaard is a creative system which lets you make a small stool or side table that are reminiscent of the art of origami.

The pieces start out flat-packed and include integrated magnets and clips. You clip each piece together and twist or fold it into place, creating some very unique patterns and shapes before the final piece of furniture emerges.

The design duo also created some sets which are meant to be mounted on walls and one which is meant to be used as a rug. The designs of all of the Playtime Collection pieces reflect the designers’ respective heritages, featuring traditional Chinese and Scandinavian designs.
