Developed for the health care sector, the JumpSeat Wall folds down to maximize space in busy hospital hallways, patient rooms and waiting areas. The seat is attached to the wall by way of a fixed, reinforced steel plate; and the front panel (a spring steel core beneath flexible plywood panels and slats, covered in a high-density foam cushion) relies on the materials’ tensile strength to support a person’s weight. When not in use, the unit protrudes a mere 10 centimetres from the wall.,
