‘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.
