designer's comment :
private park is a foldaway seat to take out to the garden, the park or the beach.
unfolded, it creates oneself a personal space in the outdoor environment.
the angle of the backrest can be adjusted to any position thanks to the little feet that dig into the ground.
following the seams of the quilting, private park folds up into a little bag
(a triple seam indicates each fold); handles incorporate to the quilt makes it is easy to carry it around.
sliding the backrest out of the canvas, private park can be machined wash.
material: quilted cotton, canvas & plywood.

title: BUNDLE STOOL
# : 1111
name : EDWARD FULLER
gender : male
age : 31
city :  auckland
state : new zealand





designer's comment :
this is a supporting structure which emerges from a flexible flat surface.
shown is a full scale protoype, the slats are made in decreasing widths to roll
into a neat rectangular 'bundle' for ease of packaging, transportation, and storage.
It can also be stored in a flat situation, such as in a cupboard or on a wall.
the prototype shown can easily take the weight of an average male.
while the prototype shown is constructed in laminated mdf with a surface treatment,
I envisage that this product can be manufactured in any panel material.

this is a folding chair inspired from japanese origami.
the chair is built with five sheets of aluminium steel.
the aluminum sheets were folded into different
shapes and friction fitted together.

title: ORIGAMI CHAIR
# : 973
name : JAMES DIETER
gender : male
age : 34
city : new york
state : usa



designer's comment :
the name of this piece is origami chair. the construction of the photographed
prototypes is from polycarbonate and polyester mesh- polycarbonate stiffeners
sandwiched between 2 layers of mesh. the chair folds together from a single
sheet into a structural volume. due to the semi-transparent nature of the
materials, the internal fold structure remains visible. the strength of the
piece is in the clever series of folds that provide the structure and crisp
angularity of the finished form.

it is made in cardboard of 3 sheets, you can arm and disarm this chair folding the sections.
