The Shape-Shifting Couch

Welcome to the future! It's an exciting place. We've got plexiglass chairs, faucets with chipsets, and this innocent-looking couch from designer Matali Crasset. What's so futuristic about a piece of furniture, pray tell?

The Shape-Shifting Couch

Well. Tap the touch pad on this thing (not shown in the photo) and it springs to life, unfurling from its stony, clam-like state. Each cushion can stretch out individually like a tentacle, forming any configuration you dream up of. Two-seater couch? Sure. Larger bed? You got it. Lounge for impressing that lady friend you have over? Just name it. [Campeggi via FastCoDesign]
