Furniture Made Like Stretchy Fruit Packaging

 |  |  |  |  |  |  October 2, 2013


I’m sure you’ve bought fruit or had some at home when it was still wrapped snugly in the box in its foam rubber packaging. I remember my cousins and I fighting over who got the stretchy, accordion-like stuff whenever an adult would grab an apple or pear from the box, because it was a toy to us, not trash.

Getting inspiration from this same packaging is Japanese designer Keisuke Fujiwara.

Pillowy Styrofoam ChairsI’m sure his chair’s designs look more than familiar to you, because they resemble that stretchy fruit packaging I was just talking about. The structure, the way the fibers cross and intersect with one another, and the shape of the chair screams “I was inspired by the foam rubber packaging that protected your fruit while it was in transit!”

Apparently, they also feel like the rubbery packaging too, because the chairs are described as being “pillowy soft” and “moldable.” They’ll also “wrap around” anyone who sits in them, making for a very comfortable piece of furniture.
