It’s easy to see why we would take notice of the Re-Ply Chair, a Kickstarter project currently making appearances in several design blogs. Inspired by a simple form — a folded piece of paper — the minimalist recliner by architect and designer Dan Goldstein utilizes cardboard and a straightforward steel base to create seating that is permanent, durable, and surprisingly comfortable. Its material finds strength in Goldstein’s patent-pending manufacturing process, which includes stacking, cutting, laminating, molding, and folding layers of heavy-duty corrugated fiberboard into a sturdy shell. (Does this sort of innovation sound familiar?) Additionally, the Re-Ply offers a sustainable design: all the cardboard material comes from used boxes, its other components are as green as possible, and the entire chair can be recycled. But what truly caught our eye? Re-Ply’s popular upcycled prototype takes shape using our own Herman Miller shipping boxes — interesting timing, particularly since Herman Miller just won the Reusable Packaging Association’s inaugural Excellence in Reusable Packaging Award.
