Arc folding chair

The unique mechanism  makes the backrest and the seat fold at the same time. This gives the combined back and armrest a comfortable shape. Still the chair is completely flat when storing.

Prototype, 2012

Arc folding chair could be used as a dining chair or extra chair for meetings. When not in use it collapses and stores easily against the wall.

Arc chair at the exhibition Subjektiviteter on the Swedish National Museum. Each designer has selected one item from the treasures of the National Museum. My choice is the Triplex lamp made by JP Johansson 1919. It is an extremely functional object that has not been exceeded in its field since its creation. A telescopic task lamp for industrial use. Triplex can be extended more than 3 meters from the wall.

Shown first in Milan Salone Satelite 2012.

Design report award Special mention.
