Simple As A Paper Plane

Simple As A Paper Plane

Who says folding-chairs have to be ugly? The Fuchs + Funke Studio created one that’s lightweight and fun to use. Looking like some weird polygon modeled pulled out of a 3D program, the Papton Chair is made entirely from one composite panel. In order to get the shape of a chair we all know and love, multiple folds had to be created. The end result is a design that’s both bold and graphic.
