shown at paris design week 2011 ‘now! le off’ section at the institute of fashion and design – the leafbed is a patented camp bed made solely of cardboard and dedicated to temporary and emergency shelter scenarios: simple, cost-efficient, disposable and adaptable to any situation. it is quickly available in large quantities and requires little transportation, accompanied by a small carbon footprint, as it can be locally produced. the bed is assembled from 4 identical modules that have a very simple inner-structure and outer-shell configuration. it can alternatively be used as indoor housing objects such as small tables (2 modules), stools (1 module) or even as trestles for a big table. lab tests have proven the ability of each module to resist loads of up to 300 kg (661 lb) in environments with 75% humidity levels and 30°c temperatures. the double-layered corrugate cardboard is the industry’s standard and can be found all over the world. founded in 2009, leaf supply is a french social business created by julien sylvain and NOCC, a paris-based industrial design studio established by juan pablo naranjo and jean-christophe orthlieb in 2008. thanks to a close partnership with leading cardboard manufacturers smurfit kappa group and rossmann, leaf supply already makes local production possible in every country of europe, latin america and western africa (35 countries and 380 plants). the beds are produced in the group’s factory closest to where the emergency takes place, hence shortening the delays of supplying help to the people in need. over 300 leafbeds have been deployed in various areas such as niger.
