compress chair

This is a contractible chair, by using the umbrella’s skeleton stucture, and pulls the seat upright so that the sackcloth hiding inside will be propped open like the umbrella.
It looks like the sackcloth propped up the entire chair and the whole person, brimming the magic effect.
The ingredients used are recyclable materials, timber and sackcloth. Moreover, it can save a lot of space, convenience for storage.
