Design and the manufacturer of a timber folding chair.

The key feature of Hup Hup is to be able to display the chair on the wall, being able to be an expression of beautiful timbers acting as an artwork.


Create 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 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.
