I keep a few folding chairs stashed away somewhere for those rare occasions when I have too many guests. Sooner or later they end up in the way or covered in spiders. Korean designer Kwang Hoo Lee has come up with an alternative to these problems with his Mona Lisa folding chair.
I can see a few design modifications I’d make. I think at risk of losing some novelty, I’d put the painting and gilding down to prevent wear, and I’d have the back of the chair be the side it swings away from in order to put in cross bars for back support. I do think this concept has potential. I think they would sell fast at Target.
Would anyone care to redesign my Christmas tree stand and vacuum cleaner as works of art? They are in the way too. (via treehugger)
