Shanghay Chair

Designed for the Danish Pavilion for the Shanghai World Expo 2010 the Shanghay chair is conceived as a single segment of the 264m long social bench that orbits the pavilion both inside and outside that has been designed in collaboration between BIG and Jeppe Hein. The bench is made from pliable plancs (two for the seat and two for the back) that move seamlessly through the pavilion to form picnic areas, lounges, safety barriers and bars. The Shanghai chair is similarly composed of 4 small boards folded around each other to form the simplest chair imaginable merging legs and seat, back and structure into the 4 constituent parts. Since the chair can be acquired in multiple colors and is so easy to disassemble and reassemble people will be cabable for creating their own hybrid designs by recombining their colors of choice. Shanghay Chair is made from Moulded plywood and Produced by HAY.
