Talk about having extra seating when you need it.

The FlexibleLove Folding Chair was designed by Chishen Chiu. He stumbled upon a small factory producing ‘honeycombed’ sheets of recycled paper in suburban Taipei one day, and was intrigued. Taking the idea of the honeycomb structure and creating cardboard palettes to replace traditional wooden palettes, he believed the material could be applied to create any rigid structure. Within days, the idea for FlexibleLove had been sketched out and turned into a working model.

Compacted, it’s a sturdy seat for one. But all you need to do is stretch out the accordian-like structure into any appropriate seating shape and blammo! instant party.

This durable furniture is produced from widely-available recycled materials like paper and wood waste, and is made using pre-existing manufacturing processes in order to reduce its overall impact on the environment.
