Here’s an idea that’s out of the box, literally: Cardboard furniture.
No. You’re not in the wrong place. This is still ECHOtape. But we love corrugated cardboard because so many of our customers make it. As we work to expand our line of splicing tapes (an important part of the corrugate cardboard process!), our research has uncovered some incredible creations that are worth sharing:
My obsession with cardboard started with the Wiggle chair, shown left. A previous boss, in life before ECHOtape, had one in her office and I fell in love with it! More recently, I stumbled upon this gorgeous corrugate bench via Etsy.
Lexus UK recently unveiled a drivable electric car made of cardboard. (Note: It’s drivable only in a highly controlled environment because the wheels are also made of cardboard.) Taking three months to build, this car is constructed of 1,700 precision-cut pieces of cardboard, which were hand adhered together with water-based glue. The motor is mounted on an aluminum-and-steel frame. (Watch the video)
Waterproof cardboard? Well, mostly! Check out this Bill Wagner photo from the 9th Annual Cardboard Boat Regatta held last July at Lake Sacajawea.
