Why Design Now?: Cabbage Chair

Event Date: 
Thursday, May 6, 2010

Why? Made from reclaimed materials, the Cabbage chair is a compact roll of paper that the user opens up and peels back, layer by layer, to create a soft enclosure for the body, requiring no finishing, assembly, or hardware. Resins added to the paper during the production process give it strength and memory, while the pleats make the paper springy and elastic.
