Chairigami Refoldable Cardboard Furniture: Just Unfold and Use

by Hazel Chua

Furniture doesn’t get any simpler than this.

These pieces of refoldable cardboard furniture are produced by Chairigami, which was founded by Zach Rotholz using nothing but $5,000 of his bar mitzvah money as capital.

Refoldable Cardboard Furniture The concept is simple: the furniture is shipped to you in a box, like most other furniture, but when you won’t find typical furniture inside, though. Instead, you’ll find more cardboard inside, although of a tougher variety, as Chairigami is made from triple-wall cardboard.

Chairigamis are basically recyclable, lightweight, and biodegradable pieces of furniture. They’re flat-packed when shipped, so they’re not bulky at all. They’re easy to assemble, too, so you don’t have to worry about that part.

Rotholz explains: “It was very grassroots. I tested and iterated as I went. A lot of the furniture ideas came from the website. People would come on the web page and give their suggestions.”

Chairigami comes in a variety of forms, ranging from chairs, to tables, to shelving, and is sold online and at the Chairigami store in Connecticut.
