The Chairigami cardboard rocket ship. For days when you want to leave earth far far behind. A secret place, a special nook, a refuge from the everyday, a view from above. And, best of all, blast-offs are zero emissions. The rocket ship easily assembles and dissembles, making it the largest portable playhouse on the planet... well, as least until you're soaring through space. The Chairigami Rocket Ship was commissioned by The Dutchess Day School for their annual book fair.
For all you skeptics out there, here's proof that cardboard is awesome. We invited three New Haven bouncers to give our sofa the ultimate test. Though doubtful, these burly guys finally agreed to plop down, all 900 pounds of them. Fearful faces changed to expressions of something we could only describe as "Boo-yeah". The sofa still stands in the chairigami retail store as a monument to this great test of cardboard strength.
The new chairigami pop-up standing desk. This piece was inspired by Ryan Mannion who works at a New Haven start-up called See Click Fix. The idea was to be able to transform any regular desk into a stand-up workstation that was lightweight and sustainable . Get on your feet and start a new work lifestyle! The pop-up standing desk retails for just $65.
Though Yale has great architecture, some of the student dorms contain oddly shaped nooks that seam to repel standard furniture. Chairigami rescued Henry Wolf, a freshman at Yale, by customizing a super skinny and super tall shelf for this particular bedroom nook. Now he and his roommate can have an in-house library without taking up any extra space. Chairigami 1, Awkward Yale Dorm Crevice 0.
Chairigami and Tour Hockey teamed up to design a super cool trade show display to show off Tour's new skate lineup for the upcoming season. People stopped in their tracks, who would think that cardboard and hockey would go together like buffalo wings and Monday Night Football. The furniture was a perfect fit for vinyl stickers sporting the Tour Logo and was easily customized for the product. Who knows, this could be the beginning of a new fantastic sport: life size knock hockey with cardboard sticks and cardboard pucks.
