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."
Label is a foldable chair by Canadian designer Felix Guyon. Almost unrecognizable once folded
Fascinated with geometry, the French visual artist and photographer Christian Desile eventually began creating furniture. His Desile chair, above, caused quite the stir at Paris' 2009 Maison & Objet show; the designer seemingly came out of nowhere to win the Coup de Coeur award. The bamboo version above is intended for indoor use, whereas the outdoor version below is produced from recycled PET plastic, and is itself 100% recycleable.
