Much experimentation went into perfecting the House Trivet by Sunaolab in Japan.
This wooden trivet folds into a small, architectural house! It is pretty cute, but it also easy to tuck away in a drawer or on a shelf when not in use. There’s a leather loop for hanging as well.
When standing, it's an adorable object, but flip it over and let go and it falls into an x-shaped trivet. To return it to its house form, simply lift it up by its attached cord and it drops straight back into place. Cleverly constructed with the trivet part on the inside, rest assured no hot pan will ever mar the house design.
This would make a great housewarming gift for a friend or coworker!
