There was a time when calling somebody or something cardboard was considered and meant as an insult. But today, thanks to its low environmental impact, cardboard is becoming a material of choice for designers of things from furniture to bicycles.

This armchair and two seat sofa is entirely made from recycled and recyclable cardboard. The range is called “havarest” and was designed by Giovanni Rivolta, Nicoletta Savioni, and Markùs Stefànsson and is produced by A4ADesign in Milan.

The pieces are assembled by dovetailing pieces together and securing them with water-based glue. The pieces have been tested in Milan and are aimed at the contract furnishing sector such as hotels and public foyers where their generous proportions are better accommodated.
