We recently received some photos of an interesting project created by Folditure head designer, Alexander Gendell. In developing the Leaf Chair, the artist used his travels as inspiration to create a design that is not only functional, but also original and aesthetically appealing: “The Leaf was just released in June and can be used in the dining room, living room, office, outdoors or just as a statement art piece. Most people wouldn’t expect comfort in a folding piece of furniture. Be surprised! The backrest is tall, and ergonomically formed to support the entire length of your back. The seat is a relaxing, yet sturdy outdoor mesh fabric. And the Leaf is a dining height chair, so unlike most folding chairs, it is actually designed to work well around your dining table. In fact, it works so well, that you probably won’t be needing to fold it away at all!” Aluminum Composite Panel frame, with stainless steel hinges, aircraft grade stainless steel rivets and other high quality weather resistant materials were used in the process of development. The folding chair can be easily adapted to any interior with the help of mesh fabrics to match any color scheme.
