With the overwhelming number of generic black laptop totes flooding the market these days, it was refreshing to have a close encounter with Giles Miller’s [2]unique Corrugated Cardboard Laptop Case [2] at London’s [re]Design exhibit [3]this fall. Sturdy, stylish, and completely sustainable, the cardboard lining the front of Miller’s tree-loving creation is 100% recycled, and the unique fluting gives its wearer the option to personalize it with custom designs such as one’s initials (or an apple logo — as shown here).

If you are looking for something a little warmer, the case also comes in cosier-looking versions craftily constructed out of old carpet patches.

Feeding off the plethora of potential possibilites that have become available to him via working with sustainable design, the young UK [5] designer primarily focuses his energy on three primary categories of sustainability: using recycled and recyclable materials, using all-natural materials and re-using existing objects and products. Miller [6]showed off a number of other recycled corregated cardboard pieces at the London Design Festival this year, including tables, lamps and room dividers. His simple but brilliant fluting process is what caught our eye and makes this refined work rise above all the other cardboard designers out there.
