Corrugated Cafe

We are always impressed by new and innovative ways that people use existing materials. So we found this cafe in Mumbai especially interesting and bold, using corrugated cardboard to make the majority of the cafe’s interior.

Aptly named Cardboard Bombay, the wall panels, tables, and chairs are all formed from heavy-duty, multi-layer cardboard, which has been creatively sculpted and shaped into organic shapes.

Designed by architectural firm NUDES, the cardboard was put through rigorous testing to make sure it would stand up to cafe use, and has been waxed for longevity. Just beware of the dreaded cardboard paper cuts. Via Colossal:
