Thinking outside of the box
With the Wannabe table, a German design firm gives creative reuse to the ordinary, often-thrown-out cardboard box.

The concept of the Wannabe is simple: It’s a powder coated steel table (available in orange, yellow, and white) that’s folded around an ordinary cardboard box. It extends the life of said cardboard box, something generally thrown out or recycled after a single use. The reuse of landfill-bound objects scores big points with me; the Wannabe gets bonus points for innovate design.
Unfortunately, since the Wannabe ships from Stockholm there’s the issue of packing the box-less table within a box. But wait — couldn’t you just use the box the table ships in? Genius.
