The Chair Project

Functional Cardboard Chairs, Fall 2000

The Design Problem
Design and construct a chair made from cardboard which is functional and exhibits a strong design aesthetic. Each chair supports body weight.
Students drew preliminary sketches to explore form and function. Study models were created next to test construction techniques to be used in the full-scale chairs. Students used single and double-ply cardboard and glue.
