Pieces of the cardboard furniture are becoming more and more popular - not only abroad, but also in our country. There are many examples in the Polish designers’ offers. Among them, there is the Larvik chair made of corrugated cardboard, designed by Michał Kędzia and made by Robert Chruściel. LARVIK is a very modern piece of furniture, inspired by Scandinavian design.
Manufacturers of corrugated cardboard furniture ensure that they are very durable and theres nothing strange in it. It is because, the manufacturers use very durable cardboard, usually 5-layer with a paper density of 1500 g/m2 and a thickness of 7 mm. In addition, a hard layer of varnish, ecological one of course, protects furniture from the adverse effect of water. It happens very often that up to 70% of the raw material required for the production of cardboard for furniture comes from recycled paper.
Another advantage is the weight of the furniture. With cardboard furniture, you can rearrange your room as often as you want to. For designers, ecological thinking means constant searching for new, eco-friendly solutions, but also functional ones in everyday use. Unique ideas for innovative and ecological interiors are based on the re-use of unnecessary objects and giving them a second life. It all depends on your imagination and creativity.
