Cabbage Chair (Rare and Amazing Images)
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
