FOLDSCHOOL DIY Foldup Cardboard Furniture for Kids

We can’t think of a better combination than DIY-crafts, cardboard, and kids- and Swiss architect Nicola Enrico Stäubli’s FoldSchool  furniture does just that. What’s more, his chairs-for-kids (or for the kid in you) are not products for purchase, but rather downloadable FREE patterns  from his website . All you need is a printer, some cardboard, and a pair of scissors, and you’re on your way to sitting pretty with your tots on some truly green, interactive, and surprisingly sturdy seating. Your three options are stool, rocker, and chair, each of which are simple to create and would make a great eco-design crafts project for you and your little one on a rainy day.
We love Nicola’s design-for-all attitude: in his own words, “mass culture is run by superficiality and ecological absurdity. Foldschool  supports craftsmanship as a face-to-face approach to design and brings together product and user the closest possible. The mindset of Foldschool  is to restore design to one of its original missions: to provide a product at an affordable price through a smart manufacturing process.”
