One Nordic Furniture Company has found a way to merge high-end design with the sensibility of flat-pack furniture. On their latest piece, they partnered with Italian designer Luca Nichetto to create the Hai lounge chair that incorporates a folding backrest that makes shipping much easier.
This chair marks the first collaboration with a non-Nordic designer and it appears to be a good one. With nods to both Italian and Nordic design, the chair has a bit of a mid-century feel.
Built with concealed hinges in the backrest, the chair can be folded and transported at about half its normal size. The best part is that it can be assembled with no tools. Fold up and easily assembled will make this design a darling of the online sales community.
