ORIGAMI by Svyatoslav Boyarincev

Hailing from St. Petersburg, Svyatoslav Boyarincev is a freelance furniture and interior designer, his style carries a distinctive look and tone, focusing heavily on clean cut edges and lines that carve out the complex shapes his work adopts. It’s no wonder then that Boyarincev is taking inspiration from origami.

The table parallels the enveloped look and feel of origami figures, which Boyarincev cleverly adapts to make accommodative storage spaces for magazines etc. We’re particular fans of this feature as it not only breaks up the table, giving it two separate top-surfaces, but positively upsets the conventional style of coffee tables, disrupting any linear elements it might have and creating a piece of furniture that combines practicality with innovation.
