Paper Chair

This wooden dining chair, the Newspaper Chair, seems to have no connection to a newspaper, other that that you might sit on it to read one. The name actually derives from the original design for this chair. The concept was to have a piece of newspaper look like it made the seat and back shape from one sheet, that had floated down into position onto a set of wooden legs. The newspaper reflects the events happening at a specific day in time, recorded with a date. The original prototype turned into a bit of a craft piece as each piece of paper was individually glued onto the wooden plyform so that it would follow the shape. This then became the inspiration of the final, more commercial version.
