The Cardboard 307 Table by Revive Workshop

"Revive Workshop was founded, not only to put the craftsmanship back into the hands of the artisan but also to revive the beauty found in discarded objects, discarded materials and raw renewable matter. By re-joining art and the artisan, ecological design and sound building techniques can be explored without the obstacles and influences of mass production."

Cardboard 307. Designed by Revive Workshop.

The Cardboard 307 table by Revive Workshop uses 307 salvaged cardboard tubes to create an unusual and exciting table. Tubes are various diameters are combined and then sculpted into a three-dimensional table base that is topped with glass to show off the structure. The tubes are cut to provide a plan, section and elevation of the tubes. Everyday cardboard tubes are elevated by the design of the table, which is sustainable in its use of recycled cardboard, albeit the glass top surface.

Designers return again and again to recycled cardboard, Tina Hovsepian's Cardborigamia and Shigeru Ban's cardboard architecture are larger scale examples of ways to use this eco-friendly material. The Papier Mâch© Stool by Greenhouse Eco-Friendly Living is a recycled paper solution to help struggling peoples, as does the Agua Table by Domingos Tótora. Recycled paper seems to enhance the creativity of designers who choose to use it, and the Cardboard 307 table fits comfortably within the ranks of the many interesting designs.
