b3 designers, british interior architectural consultants constructed a one off cardboard cafe,
during the london design festival. the team converted their east london studio into a temporary bar,
restaurant and retail design experience. imitating the look of bricks the installation was put
together using numerous hot glue guns. for the opening night guests were served cocktails
in cardboard cups and encouraged to wear cardboard clothing.
