When the means is fairly simple, why shouldn't an object be equipped with two functions? The Ziris Chair by Redbit has been cleverly designed as a regular seat with the option to adapt into a lounger.
Looking at the four-legged perch, you wouldn't immediately suspect that it's been instilled with the ability to transform, for the rows of wooden slats make the object look rather sturdy, but also very slim. If you grasp the upper edge of the backrest and pull it forward, a series of every other stave emerges as if such a form is a three dimensional copy of the original seat. When the edge is set down on the floor in front, both sides of the pivot create a continuous flat surface which renders the Ziris Chair by Redbit an effective recliner.
