Functional and funky Robochair has flair aplenty

Unlike most folding furniture that gets tossed into cupboards or corners of the garage, RoboChair is a foldable lounge chair that doubles as wall art.

Its legs lock into place when you need somewhere to sit, and unsnap to lie entirely flat for display or storage. Up to four RoboChairs can be hung on a wall mounting bracket.
