RPR Creates Custom Folding Chairs

When folding chairs are often relegated to musty closets and temporary positions, the design of ‘Ollie Chair‘ celebrates its ability to be stored in a creative and fun way.

“Just because a chair can be stored, doesn’t mean it should be hidden or take a second seat.”
Created by design studio Rock Paper Robot, the project was presented as a kickstarter campaign, where it’s already gained twice as much as the initial budget. Handsome and available to customize, the chair unfolds with the pull of a string, making a functional seat for homes and businesses, inside and outdoors. Its slatted wood seat, called ‘tambour’, allows the chair to smoothly transform between ergonomic and flat profiles. Traditionally used in roll-top desks, ‘tambour’ is a flexible surface made up of wood slats adhered to a textile canvas that gives the ‘Ollie Chair’ its unique movement and shape-shifting abilities. “Here at RPR, we think versatility is queen…and just because a chair can be stored, doesn’t mean it should be hidden or take a second seat,” say the designers from RPR. In the future, they aim at making the chairs in various materials and finishes, including custom graphic designs for bigger orders.
