having been frustrated as students with essential but often expensive furnishings,
two recent canadian graduates geoff christou and chris porteous have launched our paper life,
a line of low-cost furniture that is constructed out of 95% post-consumer recycled cardboard.
the pieces have been conceived to meet a very affordable price and require no tools or glue
to assemble together.
currently, the line offers a free-standing shelf unit and desk model that have been respectively
tested to hold 138 and 160 pounds of mass. free of formaldehyde or VOC’s, the pieces stick to
a cradle-to-cradle system and are curbside recyclable at the end of their use. both designs
are shipped flat-packed and take minutes to put together.
