Joe Warren's QMB, or Quad Micro Bar, is nifty way to seat four in a temporary setting. Washington-based industrial designer Warren observed that "bars and chairs are cumbersome, space-consuming assemblies that take up extra space when they are not in use," and set out to design a piece of furniture whose footprint was shrinkable.
The QMB is made from natural growth forest products and uses non-polluting dyes, retaining that American Northwest healthy-living vibe. And while I'm not sure about the price point from a consumer perspective—Warren's aiming for $700 a pop on Kickstarter—I could see a bunch of these rolling off of a catering truck for on-site events.
