‘Rising Chair’ by Robert van Embricqs at the Geffrye Museum, London

Emma and I went to the Geffrye museum near Shoreditch over the weekend and saw a great exhibit on “useful and beautiful contemporary objects for the home.” There was one chair in particular that caught our attention, the Rising Chair by Robert van Embricqs. We both loved the way it folded up flat for storage and then expanded out into a pretty comfortable and very nice looking wooden chair.
