Designed for the Danish Pavilion for the Shanghai World Expo 2010 the Shanghay Chair is conceived as a single segment of the social bench that orbits the pavilion both inside and outside.
The Shanghay chair is designed by KiBiSi. It is composed of for small boards folded around each other to form the simplest chair imaginable merging legs and seat, back and structure into the 4 constituent parts.
Similarly the social bench by BIG Architects and artist Jeppe Hein is made from pliable planks (two for the seat and two for the back) which move seamlessly through the pavilion to form picnic areas, lounges, safety barriers and bars.
The Shanghay Chair is easy to disassemble and reassemble and boards from different colour chairs can be combined so that everyone can create their own hybrid design.
