The otto Chair: Cardboard Coming Back


First designed back in 1968 by renowned industrial designer Peter Raacke, and currently on display in design museums around the world, like MoMA in New York and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, "otto" is coming back to the consumer market. The corrugated cardboard chair, being re-issued by German design retailer pulpo, was designed to be light, durable, sustainable and stable; ideas that are as relevant today as they were almost 40 years ago. We've noted some of the ways that cardboard can be used aside from as packing materials, and this one ranks right up there; in addition to being built by recycled, recyclable materials, it's a blank slate, waiting to be painted, lacquered or otherwise altered to fit your style, decor or mood.
