03 07 The Ollie Chair POSTED BY Drew Meyers COMMENTS We took notice of a modern piece of furniture was highlighted on AVC last week. The Ollie Chair, from the team at Rock Paper Robot (a design and engineering boutique specializing in kinetic furniture based in New York). What makes it compelling? A fully retractable chair (requiring the pull of a string) combining a tambour seating surface with an aluminum body. Made of rust and warp resistant materials such as powder coated/anodized aluminum sheet, stainless steel fasteners, and solid oiled teak — it’s durable for use both inside and out. Weighing just 16 lbs and flattening down to under 2.25” deep, portability is certainly one of Ollie Chair’s greatest strengths. The product technical specifications: The Ollie Chair can be yours for a $300 contribution to their Kickstarter campaign (expected retail price of $450 once it’s released).
