Cardboard Eames Chair
The Cardboard Eames Chair is a chair made completely from cardboard and designed for a college student that would have to move at the end of every school year. The chair should be treated just like any other chair and then be able to be fully recycled The prototypes were built using exclusively reclaimed/recycled cardboard and was recycled in the end. The project is intended for anyone with a laser cutter to be able to produce their own chair, either by using my files or follow the same steps.
To build the chair, a model of a classic Molded Plastic Eames Chair procured and then edited in Maya. The legs were made from a cylinder modified and skewed at a 15 degree angle. The 3D file was then brought into the software Slicer for Fusion360 where the internal grid and the outer shell were made. The seat and the legs were built separately and then glued together at the end.
