The need for more cost-effective furniture that's both stylish and functional is becoming more apparent, which is seeing options like the 'Octa' stool be created. Made from three pieces of corrugated cardboard, the stool is entirely capable of supporting the weight of a single sitter and can be used as a small seating solution for use in an office or living space.
The majority of furniture is crafted from a variety of metals and plastics, which can have a harmful effect on the environment during the production process and long after it has served its purpose. This has created demand for more sustainable options like the 'Octa' stool that can be created, used and recycled to limit waste altogether. The stool is the design work of Jang Hyungjin.
