P! News Returns: Chairigami in New Haven

We hung out in a shop specializing in cardboard furniture.

After a year away from our living rooms, P! News returns with this special feature from the streets of New Haven.

Zach Rotholz graduated from Yale University with a degree in mechanical engineering. He didn't go far–rather than take off around the world, last year he decided to open a storefront in the heart of New Haven specializing in cardboard furniture.

To prove it's a lot stronger than it looks, Greg takes to the street to sit on a cardboard couch with a passersby. Will it break? Will it send Greg and a random stranger toppling onto the sidewalk? Or will cardboard furniture have the last laugh? There's only one way to find out.
