    Default Cabbage chair

    Nendo has designed a new chair made of waste paper from the pleated fabric industry. The paper is wrapped into a cylinder and cut vertically half way so you can peel it one layer at a time. The chair was designed for the XXIst Century Man exhibition which will be at 21_21 Design Sight in Tokyo from 30 March to 6 July 2008. To make the paper more durable resins were added during production. They also give paper the ability to remember forms, and the pleats themselves give the chair elasticity and a springy resilience, giving the seater a comfortable experience. The production is so simple it may not be long till we are able to buy it.

    It looks a bit itchy.

    My puppy would love this chair and would turn it into shredded papper in minutes.

    Fun but not functional.

    At first I thought it was cool but I saw how it was made and I kind of think it's a massive waste.

    With a five year old and two dogs, it would last about 10 minutes in my house.

    If they sold this for $20 or less, I'd buy it for a cat toy.

    Cool concept but that thing is just hideous to look at.
