Table Chair by Thomas Feichtner


Description from Thomas Feichtner:
As the name indicates, the Table Chair is a hybrid entity, a multi-use piece of furniture. It will probably be used as a side table most of the time, but if a seat is needed, it turns into an extra chair. It’s a bit like in a London taxi: Usually you are the only passenger, sitting in the back seat. When you travel in a group, however, you really appreciate the small tip-up seat. Thomas Feichtner had a Black Box in mind when he designed this piece of furniture. It is a body which reveals nothing whatsoever about its inside or its function. If you open the black structural shell, you will be surprised by the bright white leather. In contrast to the plain closed rectangular solid the chair is composed of individual crystalline surfaces. The seating surface and the back are mirror-inverted. When you are seated, they provide a comfortable support for the buttocks and the back; when you fold the chair, they fit into each other in a space saving manner. As a safety precaution, a mechanic safety lock prevents unexpected collapsing. The chrome foot has the same base as the tabletop, reflecting the environment like a mirror and adapting to it. As a result, the monolithic base body has the effect of a self-supporting structure. The Table Chair is produced in series by Neue Wiener Werkstätte.
