Striping everything down to its essential quality, life may be more authentic. Vancouver-based designers Knauf and Brown created the Profile Folding Chair an outstanding piece of contemporary furniture whose minimalist design elements convey a message of sober yet warm simplicity. Inheriting the advantages of easy to carry, the chair folds  on a single axis through a simplified system of intersecting lines.

“The design was a response to everything we didn’t like about folding chairs. folding chairs are shy, coming out only when extra seating is needed. They are ashamed of their cluttered leg regions, complicated actions, and cheap materials.”

Constructed using solid larch and a powder coated metal frame, ‘Profile Chair’ is intended for everyday use whether indoors or outdoors. Easy to store, steady and extremely good looking, what else can you expect from a chair?
