Who says an office space has to be boring? Who says it has to be expensive? Using a commonly found and commonly discarded material, Dutch designer Joost van Bleiswijk and Amsterdam design company Nothing created a seriously stylish office suite. The whole thing, including the walls, desks, shelves, and stairs, was created from 15 mm honeycomb cardboard. It”s light, portable, and easily repairable. Did we also mention that it looks great?
The modular aspect of the project means it can be adapted depending on the space where it”s installed. Even though it”s just made of cardboard, damages would be cheap and easy to repair. In addition, it”s recycled material, so its production footprint is quite small.
As far as the installation itself goes, it”s extra impressive when you realize that van Bleiswijk used no glue or fasteners to put this together. Everything is cut, folded, and fitted snugly to create the forms.
The next time you”re faced with some drab industrial carpeting or tasteless white cubicle walls, take solace in the fact that this adorable dream cardboard office does, in fact, exist. You can also check out some of van Bleiswijk”s other cool designs on his website.
