Bill is one of our readers here at the TheTinyLife.com who has sent me this awesome video that blew my mind. Not only is it interesting artwork, but it doubles as furniture in unexpected ways!
The Chair Street Posters designed by JWT Auckland are flat-pack style chairs made plywood. Folks walking by are then able to pop them out and assemble. They go up on commuter lines for large events in the summer such as concerts etc. This could be neat if you had a set of four that was clicked into the bottom side of a table.
As I pointed out yesterday, flexibility is the name of the game when it comes to storage and space in a Tiny House. One of the many reasons that Tiny Houses can work is that when you design them, you do so with a very intentional approach. You have thought through all aspects, you have tinkered with different ideas and solutions, you read various blogs to see what others are doing. One part of maximizing space is to have items that are multi-use, to take what you need and combined into one. This chair and table does just that, it allows you to have a small table when it is just you, but then converts to an extra chair when you have guests.
The design involves a bare minimal number of moving parts, joints and other points at which a more complex piece of transforming furniture typically breaks down. Designer Aissa Logerot is as interested in making her creation durable and well-constructed in addition to being quite cool and stylish.
Found this little chair with a built in drawer, for some reasons it really struck a cord with me. What I like about it is that its discrete and it offers a great storage advantage in seemingly wasted space. What you could put in this, I don’t know really know. The only thing that comes to mind is a mobster scene where two mobsters sit across from each other, Big Jim quietly reaches into his chair drawer and pulls out his Glock and seals the deal. Besides gruesome euphemism, I could see maybe keeping a shoe horn or polishing gear. Perhaps a…. I have no idea…. What purpose do you all think this would be good for?
