This crowd-funding project from Kickstarter made me smile. While it’s a rather simple piece of multifunctional furniture, the charm is in the aesthetic. An adorable chair with a back shaped like a robot head, it unfolds into a space-saving single layer of 1.5 inches… that looks like an actual robot!
The chair comes with a wall mount that can hold up to four chairs (which also creates a more 3d looking robot) so it can still be admired when not in use as a seating device. Designed by American architecture student Brad Benke, Robochair was conceived as a practical chair for the digital age. Even though I’m not a computer or gadget enthusiast, I would still love to have a few around my apartment!
