The OSSA Chair by Johannessen/Clarke Design Folds Up Conveniently

The OSSA Chair is like a wooden marionette doll. Although there is no need for any strings to manipulate the movements of this piece of furniture, namely because the sitter would appreciate it if it stood still, the OSSA Chair does collapse as if the master puppeteer had placed the strings down.

Great for small spaces, the OSSA Chair was created by Solveig Johannessen and Krystin Clarke, two designers based in Vancouver, Canada. Not the average folding chair, it becomes compact width-wise rather than length-wise. Designed for both indoor and outdoor use, the OSSA Chair features a unique spine that allows for this motion. Thus the name, which means 'bones' in Latin, makes sense. Thankfully, it only bends in one direction. Stats for Collapsible Wooden Seats Trending: Older & Average
