If illustrations could exist in the three-dimensional physical world they would likely strike similarities with the Kubedesign 2012 Collection. Gently curving corners, thick lines and bold color blocking give a two-dimensionality to these modern movables; but their assembly makes this quality even more defined.

Cardboard is the primary building material for each of these quirky objects, having been precisely cut and carefully stacked by designer Roberto Giacomucci. Shelves have been built up by piling rectangular cubby modules and ledges have been distinguished by corrugated paper spacers. An adorable side table is accented with a tail, a floor lamp embodies an iconic form and the Kubedesign 2012 Collection armchair has been whimsically cut with all of the elegant contours of a plushy and decorative living room lounger.
