Cabbage Chair

The Cabbage Chair is created from a wrapped cylinder of pleated paper that is typically used to create the crisp, signature folds in Miyake’s garments. A roll of this by-product paper was slit vertically by Nendo’s designers, and a small nest of a chair was revealed by systematically peeling away each layer. Resins used during the original paper production process add strength and a bit of memory to the shaping process, while the pleats themselves give the chair elasticity and a springy cushioning. (to find out more..)

Just think it's amusing & hungering.. Forget about cabbage, I see it as multi-layered as sweetcorns husks (leaves wrapping around it), as thin and elegant as the skin of Siu Mai (a kind of Chinese dumpling)...

Hungry eh?
