Big Red Car

Well, today it's not about THAT kind of wiggles. Today my students started the typical cardboard chair project, so this post is about some other famous cardboard designs like Gehry's chairs for Vitra: Wiggle and Little Beaver which is not so economical on material (or price) and definitively is a nice decorative piece.

Nice furniture for a modern home are Shigeru Ban's cardboard chairs. Or this dinning chairs from (via Treehugger). Makes me wonder if we should build the real stander out of cardboard like the simulator!

We tried to look for some useful functions for a cardboard chair... we came up with some ideas: decoration, trade fairs, parties and events (like children parties)... but there must be some more... if you think of something let me know.

Viva Mexico!
