Papuru, a chair for children made of DuraPulp

Trio of Swedish architects Claesson/Koivisto/Rune is proving that innovation is the best weapon in times of crisis. With the help of STFI-Packfosk (research&development) and Södra (Production factory), they have created Papuru, a chair for children made of DuraPulp (derivative of paper) and PLA (bioplactic extracted form corn starch). It’s all very technical and it has to be, to achieve that performance : the chair is waterproof, recyclable, stackable, colorful…and it should cost half of the price of a classic plastic chair. We can’t wait to see it in stores (2010).
