The earliest known folding chair dates to about 2,000 BC in ancient Egypt. It was a folding stool with a central pivot axis. To this day most folding chair designs are still based on the same principal of a single axis. Architect Alexander Gendell of Folditure believed, he could do better, so he developed revolutionizing folding furniture by utilizing modern materials, new geometries and unique inventions. The result: The Leaf Chair and Cricket Table.
The chair actually lends ergonomic support to the entire length of your back, and both table and chair is less than 3/4 of an inch, when folded and can hang on a rod in a standard 24″ depth closet, which means that you can store tables and chairs for 20 persons in20 inches(50 cm) of closet.
The designs, which personally reminds me of old train stations from the start of the 20th century, can be purchased through Folditure’s website
