‘cardboard lounge’

dutch designer david graas’s work is best characterized by its combination of humour and material experimentation. his works often reinvents common materials like cardboard as evident in his series of cardboard furniture. the cardboard series includes a lounge, coffee table and dining table that simple slide together like a puzzle. the designs come flat packed allowing them to be shipped more easily and keep cost low by having the user assemble them. graas also developed a children’s version, that gives children the ability to assemble their own furniture, learning in the process. graas also has a sense of humour, transforming a typical dutch house into a ceramic vase for that nation’s flower, the tulip. he is also adept at taking found objects and reinvigorating them with a new purpose, as in his ‘lamp formerly known as trombone’.
