The Biombo Chair is an idea whose simplicity makes it seem obvious. The wood chair, built over a hinged wood structure, when not in use is a folding screen (Biombo). The surface of the seat can be engraved with a graphic image that transforms it into a decorative object when folded flat. To turn it into a chair, you simply take it off and get all origami.
This would have been perfect in that loft I briefly lived in years ago. The open space was great for working but there was hardly any seating when guests visited, which meant my bed became a couch.
