Samsung-Deezen contest. Turning packaging into furniture.

Let's talk!


Competing to recycle in style

Out of the Box’ is a packaging ideas competition organised by Samsung and the Dezeen website. They propose to recycle the packaging of their products into new quality designs for the home.

Packaging The Sero

The call came to our studio and we encouraged them to participate. The Serif, The Frame and The Sero are the three products whose boxes served as material to fit the proposals.

Packaging The Sero

From Cartonlab we presented four ideas for furniture with recycled cardboard. And we want you to know them.

Using a box from The Serif model, Pablo García Mora has created this multifunctional piece designed for the lobby. When you arrive, you leave your shoes and also have a small table for other objects such as keys or mobile phone. And while you’re at it, you take a break from the screens for a while.
