This chair by John Reeves is remarkable. A stool becomes a chair and vice versa, simply by lifting or lowering the seat back. Several chairs can be stacked as stools, which takes up a very small footprint indeed. Perhaps this same idea has been employed before, but I’d reckon it would be hard to find a sample with the same degree of thoughtful design and simplicity. (Update: price is $495 now, compared to $395 in 2010.)
