Gallery: Cutting-Edge Cardboard Interior in Greece

 

We love this beautifully sculpted cardboard mille-feuille that lines the walls of Yiorgos Eleftheriades‘ Yeshop in Athens. Dubbed “Papercut”, the project was a collaboration between the fashion designer and dARCH Studio.

    It look great but I just wonder how the corrugated cardboard was ‘pasted’ together?!! Is it actually glued? What kind of glue? How much glue was needed? is it still eco-friendly?

    the work presented is extremely ineteresting and oh yes it was about time to do something so that we can finally start changing the view of the endless garbage valleys in our country…

    wow, I love the texture of that corrugated cardboard, it makes me think of Frank Gehry’s chairs and stools made out of cardboard. I only hope that all the materials used were recicled!
    But, still then, the result is awesome!

    This is neat. Has some of the look of sandstone. I do have to wonder about the longevity of the material – it probably will be very easy to damage. Also, what happens at it’s end of life? Can it still be recycled?
