Corrugated Cardboard Coffee Table. Designed by Giles Miller.
Miller is known for his award winning cardboard pieces which use a special fluting technique to create lightness in a typically chunky material. The fluting process involves alternating the angle of the corrugation in the cardboard to produce varied designs and patterns on its surface. Miller's fluted coffee table has a traditional organic pattern that defies the standard look of corrugated cardboard. His fluted lamp has a similar but more subtle pattern which is enlivened by illumination, giving the lamp a classy shadow-puppet quality. The lamp also reminds me of sitting next to a fire without the negative effects of smoke.

Giles Miller also creates interesting products with his fluted corrugated cardboard technique. His corrugated laptop case is especially cool and can be personalized. There is definitely something edgy (and perhaps really risky) about carrying your laptop around in a cardboard case. While impact resistant, I'm not so sure about being caught in a rainstorm with a cardboard box. Miller's products are all sustainable, being made from cardboard which is recycled and recyclable.
