Making use of shape memory polyurethane (SMPU) designer Carl de Smet and his team at Noumenon in Antwerpen, Belgium designed and prototyped a self-assmbling chair.

“The idea is that you can buy it in a local store,” explains designer Carl de Smet to BBC News. “It’s a small package, you put it under your arm, and you carry it home because it’s also super light. Then at home you plug it into electricity,” he continues. Ten minutes later your chair will be ready.
