Giant Cardboard Muskoka Chairs

06 Jan Giant Cardboard Muskoka Chairs

We were delighted by the challenge to make a giant cardboard muskoka chair that would fit three people at once, as part of the Humber College student services wing IGNITE’s launch last semester.

Using cardboard we designed and built two cardboard chairs, each 7 feet tall by 5 feet wide, that were able to support over 500+ lbs of weight.  Additionally, to allow them to move the chairs around the site, they can assemble and dis-assemble the chairs and carry them the parts between two people.  The whole structure is provided by cardboard!

 

The IGNITE team was very happy with them, and reported that hundreds of students used them all over campus!  It is always great to see such a specific vision be realized in cardboard.
