Transforming furniture is fairly amazing universally, but dynamic roll-out cantilever chairs are in a class of their own. This design by Uros Vitas is the best of all worlds: easy and inexpensive materials, repetitive forms, portability and functionality.

A band connects the various wooden pieces so the entire chair can roll back into a highly mobile unit akin to a sleeping bag or tent – perfect for camping or other outdoor uses.

The unfolded form seems to balance impossibly but the segments reinforce one another and the flexibility translates into comfort for the person seated in the final configuration – a highly mass-producable and brilliant blend of form and function.
