100% unfolding LCW

Charles & Ray Eames were one of the first to mould 2D plywood into 3D objects using high-tech production methods and the resulting furniture became some of their most iconic. Unfold reversed this idea. Whereas Eames moulded their foldings, we unfold his mouldings. The material used to do this is not relevant. Once the chair has become a 2D pattern, it can be printed on any flat material after which it can be cut and refolded. The advantage of this ‘un-folding’ is that you can put your LCW up against the wall and save space for another ‘design classic’.
