Chairs on the Clamshell

Floger_chair The design out of Eastern Europe is to be taken very seriously. I saw this folding chair over at our friends at TrucDesign, and am wowed by it. Haven't had a chance to sit in it -- but the shape is superb.

With the flair of a Hans Wegner design and borrowing the clam-like enclosure from Mother Nature, this chair offers comfort and utility -- two concepts that rarely go together when you think about folding chairs.

Middle East University Industrial design professor Hakan Gürsu, recruited some of his students to start Designnobis. This Turkey-based product design firm is a newcomer on the industrial design scene -- but what a portfolio. Expect to see big things from this group in the next 12 months. We'll keep you posted on where its products can be found.
