The space-saving chair, and the engineering that went into it, are obviously not cheap: The chair starts at €715 (USD $844) for the manual version, and €845 (USD $998) for the automatic version, which operates via a pneumatic piston. At press time Lorier was at $11,053 in pledges on a $16,284 goal, and for his sake I hope he makes it; I'm very curious to see what other things he'll design if rewarded by success.
