The 2F Folding Chair is so named because it has a profile of less than an inch, and a different appearance on each side. Designed by Hannu Kähönen, the birch plywood chair can be stored completely flat, and generates virtually no waste wood during production.It's scheduled for release this spring from Martela."I wanted to keep it very simple, with few mechanical parts, so that when it's flat it looks like a graphic outline more than a chair."
Smart design. Ideal table for small spaces! Joe Warren's QMB, or Quad Micro Bar, is nifty way to seat four in a temporary setting. Washington-based industrial designer Warren observed that "bars and chairs are cumbersome, space-consuming assemblies that take up extra space when they are not in use," and set out to design a piece of furniture whose footprint was shrinkable.
