We have seen quite a few concepts of space-saving furniture. Instantly ‘folding’ comes to our mind whenever we try to relate furniture and limited space.

I don’t think that we have come across such a compact idea of a furniture piece before.
Below you can see the picture of the seat it unfolds into. Designed by Darris Hamroun , Take a seat could be easily kept in a shelf along with other books when not in use. The frame is made from solid oak boards and steel hinges while the seat is made of fabric and foam. There’s also a neat video gradually showing the steps.
