More Chairs? No Problem. Let Me Fold Some Up.

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.

  • looking amazing !!

    looks nice, little suspect of the slide elements in the back and base being very sturdy over the long haul.

    What also would be a cool idea would be a huge picture, that if you opened it the same way like the chairs here, would reveal to be a hidden couch. On the Wall.

    nice looking, bad ergonomics

  • Sonny Angela says:

    how’s the mechanism? are they strong enough to sit on?

  • FabZ says:

    It looks really amazing in the screen, but in real life. It’s only a 3D, it would have been nice to have a model no? Looks like it doesn’t work.
