Curvaceous Flat-Pack Furniture

Sara Paculdo's 'Flat Chair Project' Proves Flat Doesn't Mean Square

Who says flat-pack furniture has to stay cubical? Not Sara Fisher Paculdo, whose 'Flat Chair Project' defies that notion outright. The compressed laser-cut foam form is assembled by the user, saving both shipping and labor cost.

The undulating forms of Sara Paculdo's 'Flat Chair Project' are certainly far more aesthetically pleasing than other flat-pack furniture I've seen. Compare her design to some of the other flat-packed designs we've previously featured below.

Implications - While you're doing so, take time to notice Sara Paculdo's ability to make her designs pop through her deft usage of color. By contrasting firetruck red with white, her designs take on a new power, adding dimensions and layers that other similar products lack.
Trend Themes
1. Non-square Flat-pack Furniture - Sara Paculdo's 'Flat Chair Project' challenges traditional square-shaped flat-pack furniture designs.
2. User-assembled Furniture - The 'Flat Chair Project' utilizes user-friendly assembly, which could inspire other furniture designers to focus on DIY solutions.
3. Color Diagnostics for Furniture - Paculdo enhances her designs with bold, contrasting colors that add depth and dimension to her furniture. Others could innovatively use color for similar functions.
Industry Implications
1. Furniture Industry - Sara Paculdo's 'Flat Chair Project' brings a new aesthetic to the furniture industry and could inspire more designers to focus on dynamic user-friendly designs.
