It makes sense that this is called the Hong Kong Chair, as that's a city where every square centimeter of interior space counts. Created by Belgian designer Sander Nevejans, it's just 2cm thick when folded. "The cold drawn Italian steel not only provides the chair's strength," writes Nevejans, who grew up working in his family's metal fabrication business, "it also adds to its elegant styling within [an interior]."
For those who prefer armrests, Nevejans also designed this Sydney Lounge Chair, which also folds down to 2cm.
Both chairs are powder-coated and feature European Oak as the wood. They were supposed to launch this year, but production has presumably been delayed by the pandemic.
