Corrugated Cardboard Chair
Use only one sheet of corrugated cardboard to build a chair. Any mechanical or chemical fastener is not allowed.
"This plastic flower tries so hard to pretend to be a real flower; it even has a plastic wrapper"
I'm inspired by this plastic flower from a dollar store. It got me thinking about what things are versus what they look like. How can an object or a material be true to itself?
I realized I was trying to let corrugated cardboard be sheet metal or be plywood. I wanted corrugated cardboard to be corrugated cardboard. The idea of a cardboard box appeared. I used the handle detail, the way the tops fold in the middle, and the dimension to resonate the feeling of a cardboard box. I also studied weight supporting structures. The way it's tabbed in the middle makes weight make this chair stronger.
