Chair In A Can

Chair In A Can

pak1

By Evan Ackerman

Here it is, a can (okay, package) of insta-chair. The ‘pack chair’ by designer François Azambourg is made of cloth and comes rolled up in a little pack. When a chair becomes necessary, you simply unroll it and flick a switch on the side. The switch activates a polyurethane mixture inside the cloth which expands into foam in seconds, and presto, you’ve got a full size, completely solid chair.

The chair is designed to be sold via mail order, and the designer claims it could be far cheaper to make than other furniture. So far, though, only 5 prototypes exist and I have no idea how you’d go about getting one.

    hey there, Dan from sitbetter here….

    the first thought that ran through my mind is that's what the temp workers all get to use now! As soon as they're gone, unplug and shove in the drawer!
    My second thought was- wait, they'll invent the inflatable desk, too!

  • If this is indeed affordable, it's perfect festival material. :d

    Why does it look like it was made from dirty underwear? Is that how they keep their overhead costs low?

    This is great, but is it reuseable?

  • Very interesting chair but can anyone sit on it without falling down? It's only made up of cloth.
