Foldschool - the essence of good design

Foldschool is a collection of free cardboard furniture plans for kids which have been designed by Swiss-based architect Nicola Enrico Staubli. Simply download the plans for free from his website, collect yourself some good cardboard, grab the kids, and start manufacturing!

In Nicolas words "Mass culture is run by superficiality and ecological absurdity..........The mindset of foldschool is to restore design to one of its original missions: to provide a product at an affordable price through a smart manufacturing process."

The fun of sitting down and making this with the kids is bound to spell the death nell for plastic chairs and tables.
