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.

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.
