Students Create Intricate Furniture From Stacks of Recycled Pizza Boxes
What better way to get attention at a design fair than with an artfully designed booth? Taking this logic to heart, students at Germany’s Trier University of Applied Science turned late night pizza cravings into an ultra-unique booth at the imm cologne design fair. Their cardboard creation is made entirely from recycled pizza boxes arranged with the help of a computer program called Booth Generator.
The students used the Booth Generator program to design a structure using information about the site balanced with their booth’s requirements. According to the students, “We have contrasted a high-tech design tool with the low-tech and easy to recycle material “pizza box”: the layering of an actually trite material becomes aesthetically exaggerated through its gradual shifts and deformations.”
The Booth-generator is an efficient way to build booths out of any number of materials — we’re excited to see what else the students come up with!
