‘black paper 37’ chair by vadim kibardin

russian designer vadim kibardin has conceived ‘black paper 37’, an armchair made of 37 paper layers and cardboard. the functional surface is formed by arranging sheets one by one to achieve the required height of the chair.

the piece is a result of experiments with various materials, but also an exploration of the ‘chaos and sequence’ theory, documented in his research paper here. the outcome is an attempt to understand the beauty in disorder, to then reach and articulate the limbo state of balance between this disarray and its antithesis.

kibardin says of his design:

‘simple paper not only possesses high constructional characteristics but can also dazzle through the beauty of its contours. a distinctive texture of the chairs’ overlay encourages a dialog with a user, where a distinctly personalized form of the chair can be created by rumpling and chopping paper layers.’
