Could This Cardboard Furniture Replace Your Ikea Chairs And Bookshelves?

Chairigami’s furniture is made from local materials (near the company headquarters of New Haven, Connecticut), recyclable, lightweight, flat-packed, and easy to assemble. It’s also made entirely out of thick, triple-wall cardboard.

…for his senior project, Rotholz designed an entire modular furniture system made out of cardboard. It was specifically for college students, who often have to move furniture in and out of rooms. A shelf, table, and chair were all combined into one design that could be rearranged to fit immediate needs and flat-packed during moving day. If students were feeling particularly creative, they could even draw on the furniture.

    Wow! You could make furniture out of the boxes that furniture comes in!

  2. Please, no. Corrugated cardboard is incredibly flammable and not something you want to make furniture out of.
