light-weight paper furniture

Bend your mind around to getting some Twisty, a range of foldable, portable, colourful furniture


Yes, paper furniture. And we’re not talking the kind that’s made with nimble-fingered origami finesse, but paper-made life-sized furniture. Something like this is bound to get reactions of two kinds—excitement at the ingeniousness of it all, or furrowed brows at the improbability of it. Chennai-based Rishab Bothra got to experience a bit of both when he introduced his brand Twisty at an expo back in 2016. “When people actually saw the way it worked, the level of engagement and interaction gave me a lot of confidence in the product,” says Bothra.


A business school graduate, Bothra wanted to become an e-commerce entrepreneur in 2013 but needed a niche product to sell. That was when he came across these foldable furniture pieces made by a French classmate from business school.

The entire project by the Beautiful Homes Service was completed within two and a half months.

 “This kind of furniture had not been done before in India,” explains Bothra. These machine-made products use specially crafted paper and have a honeycomb, hexagonal structure, which allows for optimum use of material and minimal weight. However, a single stool can bear about 300 kg of weight. And it’s portable, which means you can fold it up and take it with you.


Currently imported from France, “we are now on the verge of producing it in-house because of cost efficiency,” says Bothra. He now also plans on introducing mini stools and other products like penholders and accessories.
