Most of us have been re-purposing cardboard boxes since childhood, transforming them from containers for transporting objects into forts or secret hiding places. With her project entitled “Move!” Janine Perkuhn has developed a more practical application for those used cardboard boxes — re-purpose them into furniture! Perfect for those who move often or lack the funds to furnish their living space, Perkuhn’s bio-degradable cardboard furnishings can be re-figured into a chair, stool or beside table. They are inexpensive, stable and %100 recyclable.
