B3 Designers, an interior architecture company, used 8,000 cardboard boxes to transform their East End studio in London into what they dubbed the Cardboard Cafe.

The innovative project was on display last week at the London Design Festival.

B3 Designers is a specialist design consultancy who focus on bespoke interiors for the retail, restaurant, bar and leisure industry.

They donated the remainder of the boxes to students working on a 24 hour "Design and Make," but some boxes were broken when someone drove through the installation, leading them to recycle the remainder of the boxes. Stats for Cardboard Cafes Trending: Older & Mild
