Desile folding chair

The 'Desile' folding chair by Christian Desile is emerges from the basic shape of a drawing. The incredible simplicity of its form entails a single numeric process. While it is possible to cut from a single piece of solid wood, the designer chooses to use bamboo and recycle PET as its' major materials, so that the finish product is more ecological and highlighting environmental sustainability.

Thanks to its creative two-way opening functionality , the 'Desile' folding chair folds completely flat into 20mm thick plate and that lends itself to the most functional stacking system available .

    Correct me if I'm wrong but his chair is not an original. Ricardo Blanco, an architect that teaches in my university (University of Buenos Aires) designed this chair in 1972. Anyone can look him up in wikipedia in spanish and see this chair (http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ricardo_Blanco). He is a very distiguished architect in latin america.

    By the way, the chair designed by Ricardo Blanco doesn´t have any bent part, related to its foldable concept (its made is PLAKA, sheet actually).
    Notice the same hole on its back.

    Please, keep it original.
