Cardboard Chairs Answered

Check out these finalists in a cardboard chair competition. Only corrugated cardboard (preferably reused) and glue could be used as materials. The entry below is particularly cool as it only uses one shape for all the cutouts and it can be flipped for a different angle.

Pretty wicked, but I think building functional boats out of cardboard is more impressive personally....

...Because...that looks comfortable... Well neat none the less. I love how it's just many cuts of the same Z shape glued at different angles! That doesn't look that hard, but probably was. Are the possibilities really endless?

Great design work. Looks like you had quite a bit of repetitious cutting and gluing but it proves out beautifully. great job, well done
