The 2F Folding Chair is so named because it has a profile of less than an inch, and a different appearance on each side. Designed by Hannu Kähönen, the birch plywood chair can be stored completely flat, and generates virtually no waste wood during production. “I thought about how it could be done by cutting the pattern from a sheet like a paper doll,” Kähönen says. “I wanted to keep it very simple, with few mechanical parts, so that when it’s flat it looks like a graphic outline more than a chair.”
