Dolores Torti – Chair 2014

Comfortably Sustainable

This chair is committed to the environment by reusing post e-consumer Amazon boxes for filling and cushioning. Furthermore, only the shell of the chair will be shipped making it economical and lightweight for transportation.
Through the weaving of the cardboard I was able to leverage it’s flexibility/durability and simultaneously reached the desired look of leather. As a result, the chair is significantly cheaper than one built with leather.
I combined different cardboard sizes and densities achieving a high level of comfort making the chair ideal for lounging seating. Moreover, if consumer buys more than a chair he could create a lounging sofa of different lengths.
