Cardboard creations are a fun and sustainable way to switch up your home decor with a minimal carbon impact. Built from recyclable cardboard tubes, FanTubes is a cool creation from Italian designers Paola Argine and Cristina Alzati of Double-ei. Each FanTubes set consists of two tables and three chairs, each composed of 300 cardboard tubes of various heights, lots of wire and plexiglass. Cut and constructed by hand, this quirky design will fit just about any decor — the luxurious Palace Grand Hotel in Varese, Italy even used the chairs at a recent event they hosted!

    Paola Argine and Cristina Alzati have truly created an interesting product here. As an interior design student, I am constantly looking for ways to decorate my appartment on a designers budget, but still be impressive to guests! This is such a conversation starter piece, and would look great in any setting. Great job! Looking forward to following your work!
