Papton Chair: Flat Packed, Then Folded, Then Functional

TreeHugger has a pretty soft spot in its modernist, hippie heart for flat-packing furniture; show us something that can be shipped in an (occasionally very large) envelope or slipped under a (really big) door and we start to salivate. Berlin-based Fuchs + Funke have hopped on the bandwagon with their Papton chair that goes from flat panels to functional chair in a couple quick fold & fit moves. The structural, geometric result is a real lightweight, weighing it at just two kilograms (a whopping half-pound d'oh! closer to four and a half pounds); hit the jump to see how the chair goes from flat to folded to functional in a flash. ::Fuchs + Funke's Papton chair via ::Core77
