Pedro Gomes' 'Compact' cardboard furniture is a great, sustainable home decor option for individuals who move frequently, live in small spaces or care deeply about the environment. The modular design is comprised of five interlocking boards that are finished in recycled polypropylene and cardboard.

According to Yanko Design, the 'Compact' line of furniture is designed to be quite durable despite its cardboard finish. What a stellar small-space solution!

Implications - With environmental issues saturating the media, consumers are now determined to adopt green lifestyle habits. These customers seek products that are fully functional, yet are natural in their design and production. Companies wishing to appeal to green demographics can manufacture products that are environmentally sound.
