Chairigami (Cardboard furniture for the urban nomad) @Chairigami #design


  • As an undergraduate at Yale, Zach Rothholz began to experiment with a corrugated material called triple ply: “like regular cardboard but 3 layers thick, like plywood, but a fifth of the weight.” For his senior project he created a cardboard chair that could transform into a coffee table and a stacking shelf, “like LEGO for furniture”. Today, Rothholz has an entire line of cardboard furniture that he sells out of a storefront in New Haven, Connecticut. Chairigami may be the country’s only cardboard furniture store and Rothholz has created a cardboard copy of nearly every piece in a conventional home/office: chairs, desks, tables, sofas, benches, stools, arm chairs, standing desks, and even a bunk bed and a giant hamster wheel for people.
