You’ve probably noticed how popular is cardboard in the world of sustainable products lately. Following the examples of foldable furniture and cardboard surfboards, a team from Eindhoven, the Netherlands, has introduced SUstand: an elegant and environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic tablet stands. Designed to minimize paper waste, these stands are pre-cut on a piece of 100 percent recycled cardboard. A little push here, a slight bend there, and you’re suddenly the owner of four adjustable stands that can hold any tablet, phablet, or smartphone. By year’s end, there will be a crowdfunding campaign for producing SUstands directly from paper waste (like supermarket boxes) to reduce the environmental impact even further. SUstands will be available during the Dutch Design Week (October 18-26) at the Temporary Art Centrum, Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
