David Narin Perfects the Folding Chair

Folding chairs get short shrift. Typically utilitarian affairs of tubular steel and crinkly beige plastic upholstery, they’re often consigned to garages and sheds and, it seems, only trotted out when an undesirable uncle or cousin insists on staying for dinner.

Perhaps if the chair looked and worked better it would attract more congenial guests?

By David Narin for Case Furniture, the Narin Folding Chair is the Ur expression of this useful furnishing. Beautifully sculpted in wood, the chair was inspired by the innovative, adaptable environment of design workshops: “I set out to design a folding chair that didn’t compromise on aesthetics or comfort for it to fold, took inspiration from the constantly adapting nature of workshops, from the function and forms of trestles, folding A-frames and other temporary support structures.”

Use the chair as a permanent addition to a dining set, a stow-able centerpiece for a personalized workstation, or the most lightweight and beautiful multi-purpose chair you’ll ever sit in.

The Narin Folding chair is made of a solid wood frame, layered birch ply, and stainless steel fasteners. The turned legs integrate seamlessly into the backrest, this junction also serving as the pivot mount for folding.
