Final Outcome. The 1:5 scale models.

Let me show you my 1:5 scale models.

There is a small problem with the table board model since for the small model, the cardboard is a bit too stiff to fold it very nicely. However, if you add a cm or two to the edge of the board, you will get a decent fold. Thus, I do not expect any problems in the 1:1 scale model.

The small problem with the chair I could imagine is not the most comfortable back support. For a longer period of usage I would suggest some foam or pillow. The chair gaining some support, in different heights, can offer a chaise long version: Now make a break! Relax!

Cardboard Furniture – Production Pattern Idea

Traditional Japanese origami uses one single sheet of paper, that is why my idea was to create the furniture in such a way that there is no or almost no waste at all. I imagine that the production pattern could look like I show in the sketch below. Of course, it would be important to cut the cardboard considering the ridges direction (waves :)) since along them their strength fulfills the required stability for the furniture.

Origami Chair – Another Decoration Idea

Origami chair offers plenty of decoration opportunities. I have already shown different skins ideas one can only imagine but the possibility I like the most is the customized outlook one can do by himself depending on the mood, sense of humor, interior design or likes or dislikes.

Please have a look at the quick sketch how it could work:

 

In case of printing the image on the laminate, proper considerations should be given to the pattern. Please have a look in the sketch below to get an idea.
