blockbox can be used either as a sideboard, wall unit, bedside table, bookshelf, coffee table, etc. the sections are designed to be compatible so that they can be stacked loosely on top of one another. the possibilities are virtually endless! and if you want to enjoy the infinite scope of the blockbox for an infinite time, you can glue the sections together with a paper adhesive to form an attractive and distinctive design feature with a practical every day use.

blockbox is available in white or brown. the lightweight furniture system is made of cardboard, recycled paper and air. this means that the use of renewable raw materials in the production process is kept to a minimum and fewer emissions are generated during transport and disposal. and as for the disposal part, the blockbox is completely recyclable. it can be treated just like waste cardboard, so it can be reprocessed and used to make a brand new blockbox. a word on safety: don’t load it too heavily, get it too wet or be too risky. the blockbox is meant to be fun!
