Multiple resting positions for ‘Dice’ furniture by Japan’s Torafu Architects, produces three different functions, a desk, a stool, or a side shelf. The name comes from the act of rolling it over, like a dice.

“This multi-purpose piece of furniture can be used in three different ways depending on which side it is rested.” says Torafu. “For example, in ‘desk for young children’ mode, dice becomes a desk with a built-in chair that offers an intimate space like that of a small room.”

“By turning it over to the side with the wide fan-shaped surface facing upwards, dice becomes a ‘stool’ on which an adult can sit.”

“Moreover, by turning it over once more, dice becomes a ‘side shelf’ with a top shelf to place objects and a bottom shelf to hold books and magazines.”

“By avoiding the constraints imposed by single-purpose furniture, we created a multi-purpose piece of furniture that can be used as a companion evolving with us through life so that we can continue using with nostalgia our childhood furniture even after we become adults.”
