Dining Womb - Offspring Parent

Offspring is a new furniture line emanating from The Dining Womb, created for the 2010 DIFFA Dining by Design. Literally cut from the remnant waste material from the Womb, these two chairs represent our progressive development in working with recyclable and affordable materials.

Working with a local CNC mill in Oakland, each chair is composed of 70-100 sheets of cardboard held together by slotted plywood combs. Repetition of sectional form optimizes manufacturing efficiency and reduces waste.

Chair #1, the blob, appeals to the grunge, hipster aesthetic of the Mission with a little bit of anime creeping in. Chair #2, the chaise longue, appeals to the refined, modernist aesthete while, the cardboard tempers any high-brow pretentiousness with a down-to-earth, eco-friendly material. The cardboard will wear with use, creating a unique mapping of the user, and can be recycled when it reaches its lifespan.
