Functional Origami: Double-Duty Living Room Component

There is probably not a single home out there that couldn’t use some extra seating once in a while. Or an extra flat surface for piling things on. This ingenious chair from designer Benoit Lienart is both – but never at the same time.

The transforming Sweetch18 is a slick armchair that doubles as a coffee table. Or it it a coffee table that doubles as a chair? Either way you say it, this simple piece of transforming furniture does double duty.

With just a simple push or pull of the tabletop/chair back, the piece easily slides between one state and the other. There are no complex latches or puzzle-like maneuvering – just an intuitive folding motion that is rather reminiscent of furniture origami.
