Cardboard can be incorporated in modern design pieces — check out this impressive gallery of cardboard furniture. Bloxes (shown above) are the latest option in cardboard furniture. The corrugated cardboard puzzle pieces lock together to form sturdy shapes such as chairs, walls, and play forts.
The creator of Bloxes, Aza Raskin, explains what they are:
Essentially 3D cardboard legos that ship flat, and fold up in modular building blocks that are strong enough to stand on. While they aren’t tech per se, we use them for building tables, walls, cubicles, and desks. Both Google and Mozilla have expressed interest in using them in their offices. So, this may well be the new thing in terms of agile office-space deployment. Don’t like where a wall is? Just move it! Don’t like the way it looks? Just rebuild it! They are cheaper than cubicles, and much more fun.
The 6-sided, 9.5 inch-square shapes are designed with CAD software and made in Chicago. Bloxes sells each case of 20 brown or white squares for $60, enough to build a form 36 inches by 45 inches.

@Anonimous: Of course it is patented, futhermore with fumigation process, mandatory for imports from China, Bloxes would be toxic and not CE certify.

of course it would be the work of a minute to have it made and shipped from China.

It really looks seem like furniture decoration, I think the engineering spends much time to finish it and maybe 2~4 weeks, but it’s impossible thing for me.
Interesting stuff – really dig the room divider!

Wow, that is some hideously expensive cardboard. Surely they’re joking.
