Earlier this week, visitors of London Design Week 2011 had a chance to see and try the “Move It” collection of cardboard furniture. The collection creator, Ruben der Kinderen from Holland Hence, told the visitors of his interest in two-ply corrugated cardboard, a material also known as Re-board. Re-board is very similar to MDF, but is much lighter thanks to its internal sandwich construction. It’s also very durable, water resistant and fully recyclable. BZ7SQ523SAXE
