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.
The Ollie chair has a unique folding design that makes it only 2 inches thin when folded, and looks like an innocuous piece of art. When opened out, it becomes a rather sturdy chair with built-in lumbar support, making it not just beautiful, but incredibly comfortable too. The chair’s construction uses Aluminum sheets and a beautiful looking flexible wooden tambour made out of Teak wood, making it great for both outdoors as well as indoors.
Cappellini - Stitch When stacking chairs seem passé, consider folding. Adam Goodrum's Stitch collapses accordion-style, thanks to hinges in the middle of the seat and back's lacquered-aluminum plates. The chair is offered in high-gloss yellow and red in addition to black, white, gray, blue, and a multicolored version. 212-966-0669; cappellini.it.
