Cardboard Glove Chair by Lindey Cafsia

We have received Glove chair in our inbox last week. In this design cardboard panels, originally used as bicycle packaging, are re-used. The material has been folded and sowed together to create a glove shaped chair. On the seat the original illustration of the bicycle has been kept intact to accentuate its origin. No upholstery is applied, although it might be possible.

The aim of this design is to create a modern unconventional shaped chair from a slender material. One panel is applied to create the seat while another panel is used to create the back and bearing construction. A straight unfolded panel is applied to stabilize the structure in longitudinal way. The whole construction is fixed on a base also made of cardboard.
