I like the thought behind the Dutch Design Chair, but I have my reservations about its performance. Launched in June 2011, and made from high-quality FSC-Certified corrugated cardboard it is reported to be extremely sturdy and able to hold up to 440 pounds. Usually, in our home the potential strength of a thing doesn’t at all determine how well it will survive alongside three small children who’s daily goal is discovering new ways to misuse household objects. That being the case, I can still very much appreciate when something has been produced responsibly, is environmentally friendly, is inexpensive, and effective at doing more than one job (although this seems a little under typical chair height). So even though I have some doubts, I do like the Map version of the chair and I wouldn’t mind trying one or two in our kids’ rooms to see how things went.
