‘flip series 1′, part of the series by daisuke motogi architecture in collaboration with sixinch

seating implements can be transformed by flipping the piece
to uncover a new form and function. the first piece of the series is a high-backed chair when flipped one way,
and low seat in the other. in another model, a stool becomes a deep seat; while the third piece converts
between a lounger and a rocking chair.
the line is constructed from urethane in order to render the models light enough to be easily flipped
even by a child.
