Cardboard! It’s low cost, readily available, familiar, portable, and recyclable, but something that’s better than all of those qualities put together is the ease with which it can be used. No special tools or skills are required to cut, bend, fold, stack, glue, or tape it. All you need is a keen sense of imagination.

This amazing new book is packed with examples of the ingenious ways architects, designers, artists, and craftspeople have put cardboard to the test and successfully harnessed its amazing qualities of strength and sound absorption.

Projects featured include the conversion of a Paris industrial space into a youthful and dynamic office; a collection of do-it-yourself cardboard furniture for kids; and, a flat packed recyclable Christmas tree that comes with an assortment of cardboard decorations.

Chapters include Architecture, Interiors, Furniture, Products, Art / Installations, Crafts / Toys and there is an index of designers and artists.
