Chairigami is an innovative designer and manufacturer of cardboard furniture. They provide lightweight, flat-packing, recyclable, and inexpensive products to fill the need for temporary yet durable furniture. The Chairigami company makes furniture that is free of nasty resins and glues and they strongly believe in producing recyclable furniture from renewable resources. But just like expensive hybrid cars, saving the planet comes at a premium. Still a neat idea though.
Each piece of furniture is hand crafted in New Haven, Connecticut. Most people call it “cardboard furniture”, Chairigami is actually made with Triple Wall, a three ply corrugated board that is tough yet forgiving. Triple wall is made from 70% recycled cardboard and 30% FSC certified virgin fiber. Though Triple Wall hails from the world of military and industrial packaging, it also makes for some good furniture.
