Folding out of Nothing

An area of furniture design that I am very interested in is things that fold and transform. This is especially important because today’s young people move fairly often; it would be useful if the furniture was mobile and transformable. 

I found a couple of examples of transforming tables and chairs. The first one is from Dror Design, a firm based in NYC. The chairs can fold flat and become wall hangings, or fold into boxes to become tables or ottomans.

Second, I have an example that was briefly shown in class already, but was worth revisiting. It’s a series of tables and chairs by Roger Embricks that fold completely flat, yet manage to have curves when they are activated. http://www.robertvanembricqs.com/projects.html
