Stitch Chair Folds To Only 15mm Thick

I am a sucker for designs that can slide under a door; that is why I loved Australian designer Adam Goodrum's Stitch Chair, which was selected as a Best design in the concepts category of the 2004 American International Design Review. Now we learn from Ponoko that Cappellini has put it into production. It is made from laser-cut aluminum sections with rolled hinges; rods are inserted to assemble the chair. When folded it is only 15mm (about 5/8" inch) thick; 25 folded chairs fit in the space of one open chair. Cool idea via ::Ponoko
