most stacking chairs fit one on top of another. this allows a number of chairs to be stored compactly when not in use. these chairs rarely break this mould. danish designer christian flindt’s ‘rainbow’ chair takes a different approach and stacks a set of chairs sideways. not only does it make a group of chairs more compact but they can still be used as a bench when in ‘staked’ mode. the chairs are also built in a semi-transparent array of colours which makes them appear as a rainbow when joined together.
