Want To Live In A Carboard Room?

From a thread on Inhabit; a retail store in Greece made from cardboard walls!
I like the simple, organic quality to the space, modern and groovy at the same time.
Says Inhabit: The installation is composed entirely of re-purposed packing cartons, and was constructed around the space’s existing furniture to create a seamless, streamlined effect. dARCH Studio built the fluid framework from 1,500 sheets of 5mm thick corrugated cardboard, which were cut into strips and then carefully pasted along an entire wall of the 90 square meter shop. Integrated illumination transforms the built-in boxes to display cases that dynamically frame Eleftheriades’ wares. The innovative installation cost 2,500 Euros, and is a stunning example of thinking outside of the down-cycling loop.
