Once upon a Time
was about Transportation...
Typically, to the Moon and back...
One Japanese Company seized upon that Transportation idea...
Then, later, Cardboard became about... Furniture...
Companies like Chairigamiís have created Furniture which
is recyclable, lightweight, flat-packed, and easy to assemble. Made entirely out of thick, triple-wall Cardboard.
Originally designed specifically for college students, who often have to move furniture in and out of rooms.
A shelf, table, and chair were all combined into one design that could be rearranged to fit immediate needs and flat-packed during moving day.
If students were feeling particularly creative, they could even draw on the furniture. (yay!)
(...and if they were feeling destructive... well... hey it's only Cardboard! ...just sayin...)
(There are Many more examples on the World Wide Web...)
Turning Cardboard into Art
...turns out the lowly Cardboard is pretty darn versatile...
More than 50 students, staff, and faculty created this relief sculpture last fall for Babson Collegeís
celebration of its commitment to the United Nations Principles of Responsible Management Education,
calling for business schools to integrate corporate responsibility and sustainability into the curriculum.
A Cardboard Quilt with a message for Humanity! Wow!
The Dollmaker might not have known about all these wonders
if she hadn't been drawn to creating with Cardboard, herself....
Fish Constructions smoothly degenerating into Fish Airships... uh-oh...
But... if you recall...
The Dollmaker was actually already onto Cardboard Construction.
One may remember how this whole Cardboard Kick got started...
Back in Time... around January-February...
Research into the mysterious Horned Hat situation
surrounding that Grandfather Frost Character...
led to Horned Hat Construction...
...mutating inevitably to "Crown Construction"
...which somehow further suggested cardboard Hand and Head Construction...
So... the Dollmaker has been cutting and shaping Cardboard for a while now...
The Fish Folk just disclose her latest Deviation!!!
It's that time of year again...
