What is flexible, sturdy, costs practically nothing, gets thrown around, and is taken for granted? If you think that cardboard is basically useless, think again.
When â€œCartonistâ€ Bertrande Durand-Jenny created her atelier Les Cartonnistes AssociÃ©s in 2003 in Paris, everyone else was either recycling cardboard or throwing it out. Free to imagine, create, and customize beyond her heart's content, Bertrande Durand-Jenny has concocted a unique collection of furniture for both adults and children with the magical touch of a painter and sculptor.
