HUP HUP Chair

The Hup Hup is a folding chair with the form and experience of a traditional timber chair.

The materials expected in a minimal refined chair are set in tension with a focus on each nesting element, highlighting the folding movement and the taught naked form.

The connecting pin is at the core of the design; it locks the chair together and is used to hang the chair on the wall. The design encourages display, as pleasing to the eye dismantled as assembled, encouraging intimate interaction with the product as it transforms.

Designed as a limited edition research project for Milan Furniture fair 2016, exhibited at NYC design week 2016. Winner of the INDIE award for best in furniture design.
