The attention for everything that is eco-friendly plus and the new developments on recycled materials are producing an unexpected, positive turmoil in the world of design.
Here is an example: a honeycomb cardboard bookcase completely recyclable.
Realized with recycled paper mixed with resin and water, this bookcase has a lot of advantages: it is economic, light but though and it can be recycled over and over. It is also a really modern object and very easy to assemble. Another pro: at the same time it can be disassembled in few minutes.
You can find a lot of models set and assembled, ready to be filled with your books, magazines etc, and the beauty of this system stays also in the freedom to choice one that you can customize by yourself, with your personal taste and based on your needs.
Despite common belief, this cardboard made bookcase is also waterproof, because it has a protective waterproof varnish, 100% green. To clean it you just need a moist cloth.
It sounds like a really a good idea. But what happen if you don’t like the natural brown color of cardboard?
Not a problem. You can customize it with upholstery or colorful varnishes and it’ll transform into your unique and personal bookcase.
