Folding furniture has a long tradition in gardens. It offers comfort and requires very little storage space. The Circle folding chair reinterprets this subject entirely. It is inspired by the minimalist aesthetics of suspension bridges and makes constructive use of the weight of the seated person by converting it into tension. The four legs and the seat surface are held in place only by one cable, which enables flexible seating comfort.

The winners of the competition will be announced in Hall 10.2 of the koelnmesse in Cologne on September 8th 2013 at 5 p.m. during the unique hour event. There will be three prizes awarded by a jury and an audience award which will be determined by online vote at gardenunique.de/youngstars.
