The Folder Chair

This lovely origami-inspired chair is the product of a collaboration between Belgian award-winning industrial designer Stefan Schöning and luxury handbag pioneer Delvaux.

The 'Folder Chair' utilizes Delvaux's supple black Taurillon leather, a material that possesses the flexibility the chair's folds require and simultaneously lends a high-end sophistication to the piece.

Implications - Oftentimes people will buy items that have a luxurious look to them -- even if the price states otherwise. The credit crunch has done some series damage and people who are looking to spend a little cash want to buy things that look like they're worth more than what they paid for them. Sometimes faking luxury can be just as pleasing as the real thing. Stats for Origami-Inspired Furniture Trending: Older & Mild
