Have you ever had the issue where people come over but you run out of chairs? But you can’t really get more chairs than you already have, because you just don’t have space. You can store these unfolding chairs though in basically unlimited numbers. I also wonder if these would work in the back of a pickup truck or in a travel van for RVing.
This one is called the “Oyster,” by studio design and architecture brand Kawamura Ganjavian, as a flexible and foldable chair. The original idea came from an idea about a paper casserole.
In case you’re wondering, the folded-down mode is also a thick comfortable cusion. Tiny home owners who drive compact cars, now you have tiny foldable compact chairs.
