boaz mendel: loop chair


‘loop chair’

‘loop chair’ by boaz mendel, is constructed from seven boards of varying lengths that are connected in a loop by hinges.
the complete object is a platform for the creation of a wide variety of furniture. folding the hinges and affixing the shape
with the help of special connectors, produces a different piece of furniture in each of its various states.


three of the various positions in which the loop chair can be arranged

every folding position has a defined function, and it is possible in a
moment to go from a television chair to a bar-stool;
from a ladder to a
chaise-lounge; from a bookshelf to a coffee table. in total, it is
possible for the chair to be arranged in
12 different ways. the
connectors for the chair come in a case with all of the varations of
the chair printed onto it.
all you have to do is imitate the shape and
place the connectors in the corresponding holes.

‘loop chair’ is mendel’s final project at the bezalel academy of art and design, jerusalem.
