Cardboard furniture by Karton Group

They are the work of Berlin-based Industrial Designer Hans-Peter Stange, whose company Stange Design creates the most AMAZING things with cardboard.

KARTON’s range is extensive, and includes everything from storage to office furniture, a bed and even a dining table.  I’ll admit the whole cardboard furniture thing is an odd concept to get your head around, but credit where credit’s due – the designs are inspired and the whole range is extremely well executed.  If the spiel is to be believed, KARTON furniture is strong and durable, and can even be painted / varnished if you really want it to last. It’s 100% recyclable, and whilst clearly it’s not made to last a lifetime, the choice of lightweight, non-toxic materials means production and freight consume far fewer resources than a similar timber or particle board product would.
