Weird Furniture: Kraft Paper Softseating


Molo's Softseating ($130- $2,390) is made entirely from kraft paper with 50% recycled content. The paper is cut into a honeycomb-like structure that flexes to fan open into stools, benches and loungers. Not only is it flexible, it's versatile and compact; you can compress it like a book for easy storage. It was also recently acquired by the New York MOMA for their permanent collection. I can see the appeal of Softseating in a public space — it's fun, eye-catching, and memorable. But would you want this in your home?

If you can check out the Rococo exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt museum, they have a great piece like this one... plus the exhibit is very much worth seeing...

Whether I love it or hate it depends on how comfortable it is! I can see the appeal of it, though!

Maybe if you had the space...but it just doesn't look comfortable. More of a conversation piece than a curl-up-and-watch-tv piece.

I think it is a great invention but pretty expensive for recycled paper...maybe it got that pricey because MOMA bought it...

I totally saw the inventors of this on an episode of "Small Space, Big Style" a few months back!

I think it would be awesome for someone just starting out, but it depends on the price and how well it holds up. It's kind of interesting!
