Away It Stows

Space-saving pieces that ease the square-footage crunch.


New Yorkers are expert at cramming large items into tiny spaces. So expect some competition to get your hands on Taiwanese designer Chishen Chiu’s FlexibleLove 16 chair ($799 at Cardboardesign, 410A W. Broadway, at Spring St.; 212-343-9700) when it hits the U.S. for the first time this month. Resembling nothing so much as a Slinky you can sit on, the chair is made of recycled wood and paper and can be expanded and contracted, shaped and reshaped into an S, a circle, a half-moon, or one long bench that can hold up to sixteen (!) people (there’s a delightful demo video at flexiblelove.com). It collapses to 25-by-22-by-9 inches for very easy storage. For more good-looking space savers, click ahead.
