‘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.
