The Birba chair – possibly the most perfect folding chair ever made – has just celebrated its 20th birthday. The seat, designed by James Brönte, has been produced for the past two decades by Bonaldo, an Italian furniture company (New Zealanders can buy it at Studio Italia; Australians at Cafe Culture). It’s constructed from painted steel in all sorts of colours. But best of all, it takes up just 3cm of space when folded up and stored – perfect for apartment living. bonaldo.it
