PRODUCT DESIGN 2014 | FOLDED CHAIR / HINGE VER.
by Norie Matsumoto
The original folded chair was designed for “out of woods” project in 2012. It was exhibited at V&A as part of London Design Festival. After the project, Norie developed the chair and redesigned it as a new version. The new Folded Chair is using special hinges for folding system instead of knuckle joint.
The structure is an asymmetry shape but the structure was found out from folding mechanism, which means there is a reason why it is a unique shape. This year she also designed small version and a bracket for hanging on wall as a set piece.
