Workshopped ’08 has its opening night in Sydney tomorrow so I thought I’d take a look at some of the previous designs that have been exhibited. Adam Goodrum showed his stitch chair concept in 2005 which has since been put into manufacture by Cappellini. The laser cut aluminium sections have rolled “knuckle hinges” to allow the chair to fold completely flat. The interesting thing is that it doesn’t have the look of a conventional folding chair. It’s very unique folding mechanism is really what sets it apart from all the other folding chairs. The chair actually folds to be only 15mm thick, 25 folded chairs fit into the space of one open chair. At least if they don’t sell they won’t take up too much space in the warehouse.
