There is something almost creepy about the stealth with which these folding chairs convert into a flat and inconspicuous three-panel bamboo screen; decorative shoji-style space divider one moment – tall-back dining-room-worthy set of chairs the next. A wooden frame serves as structural reinforcement for the lighter-weight panels, which in turn slide and slot between positions to make the transformation process smooth and simple. Designer Daniel Milchtein Peltsverger may yet have a few functionality issues to resolve but the idea seems sound (and the material is sustainable as well).
