You cannot dislike those chairs. They’re not just like other cardboard chairs. They’re not cubic. They look as simple or as complex as an origami. They’re innovative, include secondary functions besides the “make me sit on a reused box” primary one. And guess what, they’re free, you download the instructions from the website, print them and fold your own.
Swiss-based architect Nicola Enrico Stäubli created them. His Foldschool is a collection of free cardboard furniture for kids. There’s the classic stool — strong enough to let an adult stand on it –, there also is the kid chair, and the great rocking chair.
For lazy parents, there are not complete piece of furniture for you to buy, the philosophy (that we deeply support) is that you need to play the fold games. Do it for your kids, and think that after you’ve done folding, mounting the furniture, your kids will draw on them, colorize their rooms on reused stuff that won’t cost you anything.
