‘cardboard lounge’

dutch designer david graas’s work is best characterized by its combination of humour and material experimentation. his works often reinvents common materials like cardboard as evident in his series of cardboard furniture. the cardboard series includes a lounge, coffee table and dining table that simple slide together like a puzzle. the designs come flat packed allowing them to be shipped more easily and keep cost low by having the user assemble them. graas also developed a children’s version, that gives children the ability to assemble their own furniture, learning in the process. graas also has a sense of humour, transforming a typical dutch house into a ceramic vase for that nation’s flower, the tulip. he is also adept at taking found objects and reinvigorating them with a new purpose, as in his ‘lamp formerly known as trombone’.

‘cardboard lounge’

‘don’t spill your coffee table’

‘tulpenhuis’ (tulip house) in white and black

‘50% chair’

‘lacy chair’

‘lamp formerly known as trombone’

  • The 50% and lacy chairs made me think of the white billion chairs by Berlin based designer Tina Roeder which she exhibited recently. Would be interesting to compare the different thought processes of the two designers to see how they came to such a similar outcome. http://www.tinaroeder.com/
