Are You Sitting Down?
Made of teak and aluminum, this shape-shifting, space-saving chair is thoughtfully designed using tambour—a flexible slatted surface fixed to canvas—for easy opening and retracting. It unfurls with a gentle flourish and retracts instantly with a pull of the cord. The weather-resistant materials make it great for indoor or outdoor use, while the lumbar-supporting shape makes it as comfortable as it is clever. Mounting openings on the back let you hang it on a wall for efficient, attractive flat storage. A sure-fire conversation-starter, it will add functional flair to any space. Designed by Jessica Banks and Pete Schlebecker in Brooklyn. Made in Montreal.
