Paper Furniture

Posted in Stuff by tokyobling on June 30, 2009

Sometimes people do very clever things with normal materials. I for one, love the idea of these chairs (benches?) made out of paper and glass. An unlikely combination and an even unlikelier application. Great stuff. Now if only I could afford a house huge enough for this kind of furniture!

      Sure, people were sitting at it all the time! Big heavy people as well! Paper can be amazingly strong if you fold it in the right way. That’s why we have corrugated card board boxes for storage.
