Design by Alberto Meda. Made in Italy by Kartell. Honeycomb is a light and easy-to-use folding chair. The transparent or mass-tinted polycarbonate backrest and seat are set atop an aluminum frame. The refinement of the structured textured surface, divided into hexagonal honeycomb modules, confers on this chair not only the aesthetics of three-dimensional decoration, but functionality, lightness and ergonomy as well. This versatile chair is perfect for outdoors and small spaces. Folds to just 2.8″ wide for easy portability and storage. Price: $380.00. Find it here 


The hanger chair mimics one of the ultimate storage systems– the modest hanger. When not in use, it hangs and stows in a compact, orderly fashion. Unfold and seat guests just as fashionably. Available in marine, grey, yellow, black, and coral. Price: $250.00. Find it here
