Innovative Folding Chair Gives Guests a Place to Rest
If your guests are getting tired of leaning against the wall of your studio apartment while balancing their plate on one hand, then a set of these slick folding chairs may be the solution for you.
Made of aluminum and teak, the Ollie Chair is a stylish and functional alternative to traditional folding chairs you might see stacked up in a high school gymnasium. Rather than hinges, the chair folds like origami and the one-piece seat gently falls flat, leaving a board that is only 2.25 inches thick and can be slid behind a couch or even hung on the wall, since it only weighs 16 pounds.
The chair is currently a Kickstarter project that is scheduled to end in March 2017, with chairs shipping before the end of the year. It surpassed its goal in only three days, and at $300 per chair, that's a heck of an accomplishment. RockPaperRobot is an established (Brooklyn-based!) design company, so there's a good chance this Kickstarter will deliver — then we'll all be bringing our own seating on the subway and enjoying concerts in the park in jazz-age style.
