The Many Uses of Cardboard

Don’t put your old cardboard boxes in the recycling bin just yet because Dutch designers Alrik Koudenburg and Joost van Bleiswijk might just need to use them for a few more of their unusual designs, like the cardboard office interior they designed for Nothing, the new Amsterdam-based Creative Agency.

Nothing is about the power of ideas. About how a single idea can transform nothing into something. They decided that using a cheap throw-away material to build a unique and memorable workspace, was a good way to materialise their company’s philosophy.

The two designers created the interior of Nothings office using over 5,300 square feet of reinforced cardboard and the 1500 separate pieces were slotted together without glue or fixings.

The office features walls, tables, shelves, beams, desks and even a staircase, all made from nothing but cardboard!

The end result is spectacular and definitely something to marvel over. Who’d of thought cardboard, of all things?!
