Cabbage chair by Nendo

Cabbage chair is a design by Japanese Nendo that dates back to 2008. At a first look, it appears extremely far to they most renowned designs (the "wire" pieces) but, even if the aesthetics of this chiar looks opulent, the design process shows the same clarity and minimal approach as all the other works. Nendo designed the cabbage chair for XXIst Century Man exhibition curated by Issey Miyake to commemorate the first anniversary of 21_21 Design Sight in Roppongi, Tokyo.
Miyake asked to create a piece of furniture out of the pleated paper that is produced in mass amounts during the process of making pleated fabric, and usually abandoned. Nendo accpeted the challenge and transformed a roll of pleated paper into a small chair that appears naturally as you peel away its outside layers, one layer at a time: the chair could be shipped as one compact roll for the user to cut open and peel back at home.
