Electronic Cardboard Creatures
The AREA + Eco DIY Collection is Endearing and Economical

The manufacturer, the consumer and the planet all win—where it concerns the AREA+ Eco DIY Collection. Eduardo Alessi has designed these adorable animalistic knickknacks that begin and end their lives with little impact on the environment.

In terms of production, the little cardboard creatures are cut from single sheets of the paper-based material into 2D patterns, reducing potential waste. The appropriate perforations, notches and impressed creases are applied before the extremely compact and lightweight products can be flatpacked and cheaply shipped out.

The recipient is the one who constructs his object from the AREA+ Eco DIY Collection, be it a set of elephant speakers, a deer digital clock, a giraffe table lamp, a rhinoceros pen holder or an owl bookmark. The energy spent on assembly is the consumer’s own and the eventual disposal involves recycling.
