Dezeen Showroom: designed by Jonas Forsman for Finnish brand Nikari, the ultra-slim Faneeri chair is meant to look as elegant when folded flat as it does in use.

The Faneeri folding chair is made of lacquered oak, with thin cross-laminated veneers forming the seat and backrest, which are attached to a solid wood frame.

Forsman aimed to combine comfortable seating with a lightweight structure in the design, creating a minimalist furniture piece stripped of excess elements.

“Unfolding the chair creates a naturally curved backrest; fold it back, and it becomes flat,” said Forsman.

“This construction enhances strength and comfort, eliminating the need for stretchers between the legs, creating a simple silhouette,” the designer continued.

Nikari designed the Faneeri folding chair to provide spare seating within small homes, but it can also be used in larger contract spaces.
