Fold-Up Seats and Tables Coming Right Up with the Land Peel

by Hazel Chua

If you’ve just moved into a bare, new apartment and find yourself strapped for cash, then the Land Peel could very well be your next best friend. You don’t have to spring for any furniture or desks or chairs or dining tables, for that matter. Heck, you can even skip buying a bed because all you’ll need is the ┬áhandy, convertible Land Peel.

Land Peel
So what is this thing that reminds me of another technically unrelated term? (If you’re curious, the words I’m thinking of are “land fill.”) Well, it’s an innovative floor mat that’s setting out to change the world of mats for good. It’s flexible and foldable, and because of that last attribute, it’s also portable. Pull the folds open and spread it out wide on the floor to go from one tile to a full-sized mat in minutes (or maybe even seconds if you’re fast!)

Need an extra chair in that corner? No problem. Another table on your side of the mat? Easy peasy. Just peel some panels off the floor and fold it up, origami-style, and there you go: instant furniture. And if you find yourself low in energy, simply scooch on over to a flat panel of mat, prop up a pillow (or a pile of clothes) and lie yourself down for some quick Zzz’s.

The Land Peel is a project designed by Shin Yamashita who is a student at the Kyoto Institute of Technology. Since we all know that Japan is the place to be for all sorts of innovative and out-of-this-world gadgets, it won’t come as much of a surprise when these floor mats will be sold in stores there soon.
