Chair in the Box


What is easy to make, uses minimal material, supports up to 90kg, and lighter than a magazine?  The answer is Chair in the Box.  Designer Steve Sangik Lee turns everyday corrugated box into a comfortable chair.

The Chair in the box is an easy to fold and make, portable chair that could be taken almost anywhere. It could be changed into a chair in less than 5 seconds.

Corrugated boards are largely manufactured using high percentages of secondary fiber (including old corrugated containers, old newspapers and even straw), thereby diverting these materials from the municipal solid waste stream. Almost 77% (24.7 million tons) of all corrugated produced is recycled.
