TreeHugger has shown a lot of folding chairs over the years, but never one that can slide under a door like this one. It is the Leaf, designed by architect Alexander Gendell at Folditure. Just a flick of the finger and it goes from being a comfortable chair to completely flat, less than 3/4 of an inch. Graham Hill could probably use a dozen for his LifeEdited.

It is a transformer chair that sort of looks like it would be at home in a transformer movie. Alexander notes that most folding furniture is based on the principle of a single axis, but his designs are more complex and dynamic.
