Really smart design, especially for small spaces.

A novel, even disturbing, approach to glassware design. I love it!

Yes, that's what I was thinking. I can see them collapsing while falling forward (if you are to sit down). How does the design work to prevent this?

I don't know, to me it would be like sitting on a crate, but being able to store it flat would work well in small apartments. I think in this I admire the thinking, and I think the idea could be expanded and developed.

I don't see this as "really smart design". It's an idea about an idea about a concept of a chair. It's cool in presentation and it would work as museum piece. In function: something for the yard sale soon. A cushion on the floor is better for actual use.

Probably braced by a folding panel not visible in the photo.

Ahh yes, but a crate has a whole load of extra little compartments within it (to hold the beer or milk)- this is what gives a crate its strength. :) Larger, more hollow crates will have extra strengthening around them- like thick wood, or even metal.

dale wrote:I think in this I admire the thinking, and I think the idea could be expanded and developed.


Only if it could work, and in its current state, I don't think it would quite- unless the back piece was bolted to the wall, and the top part that slides down, also bolts to something- like the back wall again or the frame. But you'd probably end up with something quite different, especially if the design were to be freestanding.

You're not alone though. I see hundreds of designs on forums from all kinds of people when they think they have a really cool idea, but haven't really investigated the actual engineering side beyond the initial idea. As usual, it's easy to create these ideas in CAD, but really difficult to implement them well in reality, and even harder to produce, especially when a well known classic folding chair design already exists;



Don't give up the ideas and thought processes though! :D

Well that's why I enjoy forums, where you can read peoples thoughts on things and have a good discussion. I think what caught my eye on this on was the versatility, but you are right, if it collapses on you, then what's versatile about that.

Nice Porsche to own...
My wife has a Jaguar XJS, just like this. It's a Pina Farina design. Sweet machine, and 12 cylinders can set you back in the seat (and at the pumps)

I like that. That's quite ingenious! (tape dispenser). I hope the roll though doesn't slide down the post. And what happens if the roll is another diameter or size? :? :D
