Part card trick, part slinky, the Flexible Love chair seems like it could be more than a novelty. The end pieces look shopbottable, but the bellows seems like it would take a lot of patience to cut, fold and glue.

FlexibleLoveâ„¢ furniture incorporates an ‘accordion-like, honeycomb’ structure to create durable furniture pieces produced from widely-available recycled materials. FlexibleLove furniture, such as FlexibleLove Earth 16, are made from recycled paper and recycled wood waste, and are produced using pre-existing manufacturing processes in order to reduce their overall impact on the environment.

The name “Flexible Love” was derived from the concept of a ‘flexible love-seat’ – seating that could hold from one to as many as sixteen individuals; changing length and shape with a simple pull at each end. A honeycomb structure, used throughout the entire Flexible Love line, produces an accordion-like result that allows each piece to be extended and collapsed with ease.

  1. It’s an intriguing idea, but I’d be a bit more impressed if he actually sat in it. Their website does have photos of people sitting on it. But how carefully posed are they, and is the chair still flexible and undamaged afterwards. I want furniture that my guests and I can sit on without being careful.

    1. Thanks for the link. I looks like it held up pretty well t0 the crowds and still folded up properly afterwards. Very creative thinking.

  2. I bought my flexible honeycomb paper chair from http://www.papersofa.com … It is not flexible love but it looks and works same. Just different look. I love it. So fun to play and so useful in home when friends and family come to visit. It is really strong paper sofa. And of course green paper furniture because it is 100% bio-degradable.
