Australian architect Toby Horrocks [2] designed this set of flat-pack cardboard furniture to explore ways that urban and rural spaces can meet in a piece of furniture. The log book shelf [3] takes the theme literally: the form is a fallen tree trunk fused with a cityscape. Composed of over 300 digitally cut pieces assembled without glue, the structurally-sound seat and bookshelf is also made from recycled sources and is 100% recyclable.
