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 .
