When Swedish architect Karin Matz discovered a small space in Stockholm, which for over 30 years had been used for furniture storage, she was instantly inspired to transform [the 36 sq m (387 sq ft) space] into a multipurpose tiny home.

Using pine-plywood Matz based the design of the kitchen and bed area on an IKEA unit. Glass panels are used to separate the kitchen/bed/wardrobe spaces from each other and roller curtains have been fitted to the ceiling, allowing the kitchen and/or the sleeping quarters to be closed off from the living area.

Inspired by the clever design of pop-up books, The Folding Chair and Ottoman can be used as a permanent piece of furniture in modern homes and businesses but can also be easily transported, stored, and set up.

The entire set is manufactured from a single 5’ square sheet of baltic birch plywood. The sturdy chair folds in seconds using over 10’ of custom stainless steel hinges. For shipping or storage the chair folds flat to 5’ x 2’ 6” x 1.5”.
