The chair below has been inspired by the innovative work of Owen Maclaren.
The seat folds flat whilst the back rest can be removed and also folds.
The canvas seat is extremely durable and can be manufactured in almost any colour.
|Aluminium tube is used as it is lightweight and relatively strong. This means that the chair can be carried with ease.|
The folding mechanism is very straightforward.
The single pivot at the centre of the front and back legs, allow them to be opened and closed easily.
The folding linkage limits the opening distance of the legs and adds necessary strength to the overall structure.
