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.
