The Foldable Chair that Andrés Lhima designed is nothing like the traditional foldable chairs we’re used with. The name instantly awakens the image of a small and practical chair that can be folded and that’s also portable. Well, this is indeed a practical piece of furniture, it’s a chair, it’s foldable, but it’s not what we would have expected.
First of all, the dimensions of the chair are larger than we expected. That’s because this is no ordinary folding chair. It was designed by Andrés Lhima back in 2009 and it doesn’t have a solid structure. Instead, it encourages people to repurpose things. The chair is portable and foldable and it was designed to be filled by the user with anything from PET bottles to paper, fallen leaves, to bags and cloths. It’s an unconventional method but also a very clever idea.
