Wallpaper. (noun.) a kitsch wall covering, best left behind in the '70s. Or is it? Thankfully, no! There's just so much you can do with creative wall treatments now thanks to technology, and it's not confined to the 2D world.

Tim Várdy has studied classical piano at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague (Netherlands) and was a regular visitor of the North Sea Jazz Festival. There he got the idea of a handy cardboard stool due to the fact that it had to be lightweight and fully printable for advertising. With the help of industrial designers he developed a cardboard chair. Then patented it internationally.
Since then the chair has been developed further and further and became an art object which is sold at museums like the Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam and Galleries like the Lafayette in Paris. Since 2011 The Dutch Design Chair was developed and is sold in fancy design stores in Holland and abroad. The New York Times Style Magazine described the chair as a ‘Dutch standout creation’ in an article on Dutch design. We're one of those proud fancy international stockists, so we thought we'd sit down with the designer and ask him a few questions.
