Cardboard Box Furniture

Many furniture companies are making lots of efforts for making recyclable furniture.
I would like to introduce the company in Ishinomaki where the Earthquake and Tsunami hit in 2011.

Kon-no Kompou (Kon-no Packing) came to be well known after the disaster as they made a lot of efforts for making furniture by using their technologies of card board box and the furniture contributed a lot for the rescue houses in disaster area. The company won Japan’s Good Design Award.
Mr. Kon-no, the president shows their technologies of making those furniture on web in hoping to help the people in the disaster areas.
Having good design, Recyclable and helping people… these are inspiring spirits for interior designer!

I also love his cardboard car named “Damborghini” (the word came from Japanese word “Damball -cardboard”).
