Gallery: Matali Crasset’s Stylish Chair Serves Many Functions

Double Side’s backrest could be lift becoming a useful working desk.

Multifunctional objects can sometimes be unnecessarily difficult to use. But French designer Matali Crasset has designed a simple, yet stylish eco-friendly piece that requires little thought, while still providing a whole lot of convenience. Dubbed ‘Double Side’, Crasset’s latest creation for Italian firm Danese Milano is a chair and desk in-one!

Inspired by the fact that nowadays objects need to fulfill more than one function, Matali Crasset came up with the Double Side, which features a backrest that can be lifted to become a useful working desk or shelf.

The stylish object is made from birch plywood and comes with a pallid blue, green, beige or orange biodegradable felt cover. Its shape is so simple and stremlined, the chair can easily be integrated into any home’s decor.
