Those pesky chair legs that we all try to avoid while sweeping under the table are an age-old problem; a redesign was in order, and the Poh Liang Hok chair has answered the call.

This seat has a track installed on its backrest, which allows the plastic seat to roll up along the frame. With the plastic seat raised a couple of inches off its frame, it creates the perfect slot that the table edge can insert into. This innovative design allows chairs to levitate, so their long limbs will be out of the way of dutiful floor cleaners. The square frame allows for easy stackability as well.

With the potential to make a restaurant's decor look upscaled, it can also be an efficient way to lock up and clean for the night.
