The Incredible Caf̩ made of Cardboard
ThereAÛªs an extraordinary cafÌ© in Mumbai, India, which has been created by the visionary Indian design studio, NUDES.A The interior of the cafÌ© has been cleverly crafted, using corrugated cardboard, really taking eco-materials to the next level.
The chairs, light fixtures and tables have been layered using a strong triple wall corrugated cardboard, which has then been waxed to protect from heat, humidity and spillages, in order to make it suitable for cafÌ© use.
In the centre of the cafÌ© is a mind blowing, undulating wave wall, madeAÊentirely from corrugated cardboard!
Some of the pieces, such as the chairs and a table that juts out from the wall, have been crafted in such a way they almost look like hardwood.A The layered card walls follow through the theme but also provide acoustic sound proofing.
This project was completed in approximately 7 months, including a 4-month period of prototyping and 3 months of construction.A It isAÊan excellent example of how versatile this environmentally friendly material is, and as you can see the sky is the limit if combined with a huge imagination and practical design know-how.
