Chairigami Refoldable Cardboard Furniture: Just Unfold and Use

 |  |  |  |  |  August 15, 2013


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.
