Named after the Japanese word for furniture, the Kagu is a clever, versatile, foldable chair that folds down into a low, coffee table or a floor-sitting table. Designed by India-based Viswak Raja, the Kagu solves multiple purposes in a single, simplistic design. Made broadly from two wooden units hinged together at a single point, the Kagu folds up to either become a sturdy chair, or collapses downward to turn into a table that sits just a little over a foot off the floor. Raja’s hinge placement allows the angled seating surface and backrest to become collinear, becoming a broad table with a split surface and a gap in between that’s wide enough to route your laptop and smartphone charging cables through! Neat, eh??
