iF concept design award 2010

One box, one chair is a design about reusing boxes used for moving and get disposed. Without deconstruction of box’s original structure, a box can be transform into a chair by pushing one corner of the box in to the arch shape of existing folding lines. Since the original structure of a box is maintained, users can easily convert a chair back in to a box when necessary. For instance, a student can use a box as a chair when she is living in a dorm and use it as a container when she is moving out.

A lightweight, easy to assemble, packing box is transformed into a lightweight, easy to assemble seat, and back again into a lightweight, easy to assemble packing box......
