Polygons – a very nifty origami-style measuring spoon that folds into four different volumes depending on how you pick it up, flattening out to allow the last sticky remnants to be scraped into the bowl.

Two different sizes, one for teaspoons and one for tablespoons.

Ghostcube is a series of hinged interlocking wooden cubes created by Swedish designer Erik Åberg which can be twisted and folded – origami style – into a seemingly endless array of complex shapes.

Åberg has open-sourced the design in the form of 30 minutes of development and application video that you can download from his site.

When it’s a four panel kinetic sculpture.

The Evolution Door by Austrian designer Klemens Torggler opens and closes at the slightest touch, folding aside like origami, without crushing your fingers in the process (unless perhaps you’re using the steel one).

For now, the Drehplattentür (flip panel door) remains a prototype.
