Aluminum Folding Chair

Internal Project
Work Furniture Design & 3D Visualization
Year 2022
We've always been fascinated by metal furniture. The amalgamation of modern industrial looks and traditional craftsmanship always inspired our designers at (acasso). Surrounded by numerous electronics and having a daily routine of designing them, we wanted to break away from our norm and design something that didn't require 'tech'. Furniture was the product that could be designed solely with a sense of proportion, materiality, manufacturability, and usability. When we decided to design a chair, our main concern was if we could create a unique chair that would stand out among many existing chairs. After our initial research, it seemed that folding chairs are somewhat less explored compared to regular chairs. We wanted to design a unique folding chair with a new folding UX in terms of both style and mechanism. We devised an unconventional structure assisted by nylon straps and a military-grade metal buckle, often used in fashion accessories.

Tekron folds completely flat by tightening the nylon strap from behind and does not accidentally unfold unless the buckle is released. As the nylon strap is pulled, the back of the seat smoothly rotates & slides up through the bearing-assisted sliding structure until it is completely vertical. Tekron is made of lightweight and durable aluminum that can be folded and unfolded for a long time. As chairs are not just meant for sitting, we also considered the interior effect. The vivid-colored lifting straps serve as a pleasing accent to the space.
