‘Crumpled Letters’Â by Michal Budny.
Ferry Staverman makes objects like this one. They are made of beeboard, cardboard with an honeycomb core, and hold their structure with thin threads.
If you have some cardboard lying around and some spare time, then you can also build yourself a box like the Mafoombey to listen to your favorite music …
“When homeless take over the world, the cardboard revolution” shows you the future of product design. Actually I think it’s part of a charity campaign … but I couldn’t really find proof for it. Anyway here are the “portable stereo speakers” and the “Hide-A-Key” from their collection.
I’m actually quite notorious for the way I wrap gifts. My style is somewhere between a supermarkets plastic bag and a newspaper wrap. Maybe it’s just to camouflage my inability to wrap something nice and tidy. Now Apple comes to rescue (only in the US though), for $ 5 you get an apple-quality-origami-style wrap for that iPod you actually rather have yourself.
