Usually designers who make furniture that can be reconfigured into different pieces give their creations funky names like "transmorgrafer" or numeric call signs such as "LV-22C." Not Joe Colombo. He created the Multichair back in 1971 and pretty much decided to call it what it is. It's chair made from two "transformable elements" that you can combine in multiple ways to create various chairs, sofas, etc. I'm a little skeptical that you can make them into an armchair (which it says you can) because they have no arms, but otherwise I buy it. There's a diagram that shows you what all you can do with it for the $1,500 it will run you.
