Made from bamboo pulp, these paper chairs by Chinese design studio Pinwu are made in collaboration with local paper craftsmen.
The sturdy shell of Pinwu's GÃ¹ chair is made from pressed bamboo pulp.
Called GÃ¹, the chairs are made by craftsmen from bamboo paper making villages near the district of Yuhang who continue to produce paper from natural bamboo fibers. Now available in a variety of pastel colors including gray, yellow, red and green as well as classic white chair, the shell of the GÃ¹ chair rests on four turned beech legs.
