Colorful Foldable Chair by Andrés Lhima

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.

The intriguing Missix armchair

The Missix armchair was designed by Di Marzio Design. It’s not an armchair like the other ones. This one has a very unusual design. It continues the concept introduced by the chair with no legs, made from one single piece of plastic. That one had a simpler shape. The Missix armchair is made of rotational molded polythene. It’s also made from a single piece of material.

The armchair has a very simple and modern design. Still, it’s a sophisticated simplicity. The name of the armchair gives us a clue for the shape of the design. The chair has a heavy-rounded number six shape. The chair seems to have a compact design and shape. However, on a closer inspection, the sinuous lines reveal something else. The armchair features curved lines and delicate shapes that form a sophisticated and yet minimalistic design.
