TV PACKAGING TURNS INTO TV STAND, Tom Ballhatchet, Eco TV stand, Reuseable Packaging, Furniture made from Packaging, Packaging Furniture, Recycling packaging for furniture [1]

In its quest for ‘bigger and better’ technology, mankind is facing a mountain of expanded foam pieces and polystyrene packing material used to protect items during handling. Tom Ballhatchet [2], a recent graduate from the Central St Martins’ MA in Industrial Design, has come up with a simple and utterly plausible solution. Rather than throw away the packaging and leave nature (and a few hundred years) to deal with it, Ballhatchet’s [2] concept allows the user to slide foam casing apart after delivery and reassemble the parts to form a neat self-contained entertainment stand with built in cable management system.

With a patent imminent, Ballhatchet’s design is already generating a lot of interest – and we hope to see this idea applied to more packaging design in the future.
