Hechima 5 by Ryuji Nakamura

August 17, 2009

Japanese architect Ryuji Nakamura has added a fifth piece to his Hechima collection.

Hechima 5 is a stool made from paper (vulcanized fibre), which allows it to be light and airy, yet surprisingly strong.

From Ryuji Nakamura:

It is made of sheets of firm industrial paper that have been stuck together in many wavy layers to make the holes look like a net. The strength and flexibility have been adjusted to fit the size of the holes. It is easy to make and widely used even as a table or a bed. The design is mechanical and simple, and depending on the angle, it portrays an organic and complicated shape with a strong impact.
