As if from nowhere…by Orla Reynolds

I love this space saving idea from designer Orla Reynolds. The table and chairs with their vivid colours are made out of steel and can be easily removed when needed. The chairs become comfy by adding cushions held in place by magnets. This would be the perfect solution for those of you living in small spaces, or for when unexpected guests drop by and you need extra seating.

Reynolds a former ballerina says this:

“The movement from bookcase to dining is like a scene change. It transforms the space like props on a stage. The dancers can be seen in the chairs and tables. These are made of such strong material that there is an expectation that they are heavy. But they are lightweight. They are streamlined creating an elegant silhouette”
