The lovely life-sized origami-style Folder chairs by designer Stefan Schoning are assembled by folding them just like an origami creation. How cool is that?
The ‘Folder’ can withstand your weight since it is made from paper-thin polypropylene, which means the look is very cool and the construction lightweight, rigid and tough. The chairs more durable than wood, plastic or metal and have been exhibited around the world: the National Design Museum in NY, Nike Design Library in Oregon, Colette in Paris, Salone Satellite in Milan, and 100% Design in London, UK.
What’s not to love?

The theme of today’s Friday Five is the dining room. It’s a place to gather with friends, enjoy good food, and share some laughs so why not make it comfortable, fresh and fantastic for all to enjoy!
How many chairs do you see? Designed by Japanese architect Junya Ishigami, these seemingly lightweight chairs are sturdy enough to support the weight of a person.
