Sitting on furniture boxes

As cost and sustainability becomes increasingly important in packaging, designers are more and more frequently looking to create packaging with reusability in mind. And what better way to do that than to have the packaging convert into the product itself?

One of the cleverest applications of that thinking is the corrugated furniture of David Graas. His designs punch out of flat corrugated sheets to be assembled into interesting furniture.
