Koji Sekita is a Tokyo-based company that has designed a unique collection of paper furniture. The collection is strong and graceful, made from a combination of paper and cardboard pieces. Each individual piece is bent and woven into a zigzag design, and the matching pieces are joined together. This creates a durable honeycomb structure, which gives it the ability to support a person's weight. Any length of chair can be created easily because of the materials and techniques used in this fluid grid design.

The Koji Sekita foldable chair set was recently presented at the 2012 international furniture fair in Singapore. This international fair began in 1981, and is recognized as the most distinguished furniture trade show in Asia. The remarkable fluid gridding and thin fabrics used in Watching You make this project different from what would typically be seen in architecture school.
