FIDA / Folding mat

Being able to kick back and relax at any place you like: in cooperation with VIAL, the designer Patrick Frey has developed a modern concept for portable, comfortable seating – the FIDA folding mat. In just a few simple steps the mat can be folded into a fully functional seat with backrest. The two corners of one of the shorter sides are bent backwards and connected with a fastener. This creates an upright triangle that serves as a backrest. FIDA is made from CORDURA®, a hardwearing outdoor material. The mat is filled with PE foam and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
