Mizo folding "briefcase" chair set for commercial release
November 27, 2012
Following the success from the Salone Satellite graduate exhibition during this year’s Milan Design Week, young Japanese designer Satoshi will actually see his graduate project come to fruition. Japanese manufacturer Smaut will produce and distribute the Mizo chair series, which is a fun and flexible mobile chair that you can fold up and carry like a briefcase.
The Mizo mobile stool series, is made from a strong wooden core structure which has then been covered in a felt fabric for comfort and durability. When not used as seating, the stool simply folds up into a flat and compact sized structure, featuring a secure strap and handle for easy mobility. The series comes in two sizes, single or double, and five different colors. The stool is a great idea for outdoor picnics or events, a temporary bus stop stool or even for space-saving seating around the home.
We had the chance to meet with Satoshi during the Milan exhibition and it’s great to see at least one of the many inspiring student ideas making its way onto the market place. To accompany the Mizo mobile stool, Satoshi has also created a line of fun and flexible furniture items that range from improvisational shelving to a colorful shoe rack.
