Each year CCAD students in Industrial Design studio II find out if they can design cardboard chairs that are strong enough for someone to sit in.
The annual tradition known as the cardboard chair competition is a four-week project that involves research, ¼-scale models, cut path drawings, full size testing and an assembly instruction manual. The whole project culminates in a competition where the cardboard constructed chairs are sat upon over and over again until the competition crumbles and only a few remain standing (or rather seated).
The final competition of the 2009 project took place Oct. 15 in Design Studios on Broad.
