The Fold Chair by Marina Bautier

May 1, 2009

Belgian designer Marina Bautier has created the Fold chair.

From Marina Bautier:

Taking little space when folded away, Fold keeps nevertheless the comfort of a standard lounge chair. Its language is voluntary the one of an indoor seat, thanks to the choice of material, the generous proportions and the padded seat. Easily moved around it can also occasionally be used outside. Each element
contributes to the unity of the whole, from the lines and proportions of the cross structure, through the press studs allowing to fix the woollen pad, to the metal brackets which visually express the language of a folding chair.

The designer – Marina Bautier:

Graduated from Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College (UK), Belgian designer Marina Bautier set up her own design practice in 2002 in Brussels. She works on a wide range of projects, from products to interiors. Marina Bautier cultivates a design approach based on use. Away from any pretence, she creates furniture and objects whose quiet normality hides many small attentions; furniture and objects which render many services without ever encumbering. While she gives priority to simple structures and materials easily manufactured, she also attaches great care to the appearance and implementation qualities. Away from technological rhetoric, Marina Bautier emphasizes the beauty and the modernity of familiar materials, and especially of wood. Marina Bautier works internationally with clients such as Idée (JP), Case (UK), Ligne Roset (FR), and De La Espada (P).
