Never underestimate the power of cardboard. And it seems designer János Terbe had that in mind when establishing the Karton Design company. Located in Törökbálint, Hungary, the company creates these amazing pieces of furniture only from recycled paper, setting an example of green design and environmentaly friendly equipment for shops, offices, homes, and also exhibition stands.
The company sales its furniture directly to the customers, and sends it in others countries as well.
As a designer, I look for new, until now unheard of opportunities for the application of paper. The lightness and natural human-friendly appearance of cardboard offers unlimited opportunities of application. The objects constructed by folding or from tightly fitted identical boards cut from planes are not only inventive, but do have their functionality. (János Terbe)
