Like England's paper bridge (but using an entirely different design) this accordion-like paper sofa called the Concertina Design Paper Chair/Sofa apparently accomplishes the ultimate feat in paper furniture engineering: the ability to support human weight. According to Design You Trust, it can hold up to 100 times its weight, which comes out to around 640 pounds, if you get the biggest size. And it can be folded into a smaller chair, which is pretty cool. Does it look particularly comfortable? No, it does not. But how much are we really expecting from our paper sofas at this point?
