Cardboard furniture can also be used for bigger projects, such as a shop for example. This is a second hand shop that was designed by Dutch practice BYTR Architects and that can be found in the Netherlands. For this project, the architects decided to try a more ingenious approach so they used cardboard pallets to make the furniture. This kept everything within a budget and the result was also very interesting.
