jang yoon is a los angeles based industrial designer who works primarily in furniture. yoon was on of the designers featured in the ‘protoype: design for ideas for the home’ exhibit at this month’s interior design show in toronto. jang yoon whoed two designs at the show including the folding chair ‘janus’. made of plastic, ‘janus is a folding chair that also stacks. while in its upright mode, the chair is rather typical despite its vivid red colour. the chair comes to life when the back is folded down onto the seat, transforming the chair into a stool of sorts. the insect-like stool can then be stacked in small numbers. in stool position, the chair has a small backrest that is used as the support for the back when in chair mode. as of now the design is still in the prototype phase.
