Designed for city dwellers who live in limited living space, this piece aims to satify multiple needs and occasions.
easy to assemble

Growing up in small living space, I appreciate design that come in flat packages. It is easier to move around in a limited space, a flexible piece is always more appealing.

The edges curve up on both short sides while transitioning gracefully down into a long bend surface.

No matter if it is just one, two or four, bian-yuan is able to accomodate.

One that was enjoyable and helpful for this project is paper construction, scoring the edges to create different effects
