Fold School

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

As anyone who has ever given a shiny new toy to a child, only to witness the packaging being played with more than the gift, knows, kids don’t care about price or material. From Swiss designer Nicola Enrico Stäubli comes Foldschool, a line of DIY cardboard furniture aimed at reducing the waste typically associated with furniture.

The cardboard cutouts put the design process in the hands of the consumer; all one needs to make a chair, stool or rocker (based on free downloadable patterns) are a few household items: cutter, ruler, folding tool, cutting mat, spray adhesive, needle, glue and masking tape. Building a Foldschool piece is a hands-on lesson in design, architecture, construction and sustainability — how many other chairs can claim that?
