The Curvate cardboard chair is quite a unique piece of furniture. The design portrays an organic form with a bean shape. Using principals of engineering, the chair gets its tremendous strength due to hundreds of sheets standing vertically. For assembly, the chair is put together similar to that of two puzzle pieces for easy storage. Once connected, cardboard ‘dowels’ are inserted, which expand and hold the whole chair together without the use of any adhesive. And yes, this cardboard chair actually holds the weight. I think its a pretty cool invention. I would constantly be worried whether or not it would collapse on me but it looks like a great and pretty trustworthy product design. I think its worth the risk!
