CARDBOARD BAR

MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA, 2013

 
 

PROJECT OVERVIEW...

The Cardboard Bar’s concept was developed around simple ‘everyday’ materials, those that were less than obvious and not normally perceived as attractive but when used in a deliberate way, could create something quite beautiful.

The 10m high ‘outer shell’ provides the main drawcard and is then complimented with cardboard and recycled ply furniture, as well as custom lighting elements and subtle.

The use of recycled paper, cardboard and ply for almost all of the decorative finishes and the majority of the structural form means that more than 95% of the materials used will again be utilised at next years event. An exciting,  sustainable and environmentally friendly success.
