The AIAS (American Institute of Architecture Students) hosted a competition to design a chair from cardboard sponsored by the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation in the Spring 2009 academic semester.
Corrugated board has the best recycling rate of any packaging material used today, roughly 77% (24.7 million tons),diverting these materials from the municipal solid waste stream.
A hard look at every scrap of corrugated can lead the creative mind to see it as a valuable raw material with great versatility and flexibility for design.
