Gomi-style Gehry Chair Knockoff

"At Gomi style, it is better to reuse and keep material out of the waste stream altogether" So Marque Cornblatt says as his Gomi-style makeover team knock off Frank Gehry with a cardboard chair design. (Gomi, as William Gibson coined it, "is a Japanese word meaning dust or garbage but is has become a popular slang word for anything that we throw away"). However their chair design is incredibly inefficient and wastes about three quarters of the cardboard that they started with, which all has to go back to the recycling bin.

Now if they had spent a little time to figure out how to optimise the cutting of the cardboard to get more out of a sheet this might be much better. ::Gomi Style via ::Apartment Therapy
