Chair #252

—Designed by Charles Kaisin

Although it looks closer to a hairy sheepdog or a prehistoric wooly mammoth than a chair, this is actually a very clever creation that was presented in the Maison & Objet fair in Paris in September 2007 as a part of the Ecological trend. It's all about being green and repurposing these days, isn't it? The chair is made of very fine cut paper by the designer Charles Kaisin from Brussels. It's all art, and not remotely practical of course. I mean, you certainly couldn't really use this chair in a normal way because the pieces of paper would become all matted and dirty … and then you couldn't wash it. It does however, look more comfortable than some of the other chairs on this blog.
