There is something almost creepy about the stealth with which these folding chairs convert into a flat and inconspicuous three-panel bamboo screen; decorative shoji-style space divider one moment – tall-back dining-room-worthy set of chairs the next.
A wooden frame serves as structural reinforcement for the lighter-weight panels, which in turn slide and slot between positions to make the transformation process smooth and simple. Designer Daniel Milchtein Peltsverger may yet have a few functionality issues to resolve but the idea seems sound (and the material is sustainable as well).
Of course, this would not be too difficult to make for the DIY-inclined – which is fortunate since (for now) this screen-and-chair combination is only a concept design. Still, given the appeal of home product that folds flat for storage in small apartments, it would make sense for these to start flying off the shelves should they ever be produced for sale.
