Folding furniture

This furniture is based on regular repetition of folding structure. The basis is using flexible and collapsible nature of paper. The key obstacle in this structure was for paper to endure human’s weight. Important aspect of this furniture is when the paper is folded as pale wise way so it became powerful. It gains more rigidity when it is folded in a zigzag way than when it stands in a singlet. With this system, rounded array system is also one of the ways to make the structure stronger. This paper furniture has variability, movability, and aesthetic aspects. You can go picnic with this furniture and have a luxurious coffee time on the park.
