Cabbage Chair

March 24, 2008

The Cabbage Chair is created from a wrapped cylinder of pleated paper. A roll of this by-product paper was slit vertically, and a small nest of a chair was revealed by systematically peeling away each layer. Resins used during the original paper production process add strength and a bit of memory to the shaping process, while the pleats themselves give the chair elasticity and a springy cushioning. The Cabbage Chair has no internal structure or framework, nor is it assembled with nails, screws, or additional textile elements.

This Jet Powered VW Beetle is powered by two engines (original up front, jet in back) and is perfectly street legal since you’re only using the gasoline powered engine in normal driving conditions. But if you’re feeling adventurous, fire up the jet engine – which spins up to 26,000 rpm/13,000 rpm idle – and watch the afterburner come to life.
