Like to gamble? Try rolling the dice. Taking their cue from the way a dice rolls around revealing different sides, Torafu Architects have designed a piece of furniture for kids and adults. Simply titled “Dice,” the piece can be oriented 3 different ways: a small desk and chair for a child, a stool for adults or a shelving unit for books and magazines.
Although the rounded edges almost look like it can be rolled around, it’s recommended to life the piece up and reorient it. Torafu explains that they wanted to create a piece of furniture that can evolve along with a family; a piece that adults can use while reflecting upon the nostalgia of childhood. Dice will be manufactured by furniture maker Tanseisha, but a release date has not been set yet.
