Bring out the inner architect in your little one and expose them to great design. Here’s a clever chair that shows you how. The DIY Cardboard chair by Babyology favourite Muji is designed for preschoolers. Made from recycled paper it’s easy to decorate so let your child run wild with crayons and paint. If you have a minimalist in the making keep the chair raw, it looks fantastic.
Muji’s signature style is understated and simple. Their no-logo policy carries through everything, from their name to their products. The name Muji is derived from Mujirushi Ryōhi, the Japanese term for no-brand. An endeavor to avoid waste in production and packaging means that shipping will be as efficient as possible.
True to Muji’s modest concept, the DIY cardboard chair has a paper-bag brown finish and streamlined styling. Unfortunately Muji is yet to come to Australia but a small selection of product can be purchased online from the MOMA store. Our Australian dollar is strong right now so there’s never been a better time to buy from the US.
The DIY Cardboard Chair comes flat-packed in two sizes. The small is for kids up to 110cm tall and is US$26.50. The large suits kids up to 120cm and sells for US$29.50 plus shipping. Kids have splattered paint about at numerous cardboard chair workshops in America. See how they decorated theirs on Muji’s website under ‘Muji Tips’.
