Alain Bertreau’s Instant Chair is a plywood transformer chair that folds down into one small flat sheet for storage, but pops into a sturdy seat in a matter of seconds. Using the latest panel cutting technology, the affordable Instant chair uses only a couple square feet of plywood. Berteau’s economy of means and materials is a refreshing change from the “more is more” mentality of everyday consumer furniture.

    Can a 300lb person ever “plop” down on a chair without damaging it?

    I looks uncomfortable to me. And I also wonder a bit about it’s structural resilience. Could a 300lb person “plop” down on the edge of this chair and not damage it?

    […] A perfect chair for those of us in teeny apartments! They don’t seem to be avaliable in the US yet, however :( […]
