Cardboard Computer Desk Is Definitely Not Water- or Fireproof
May 30th, 2012
We all need desks, but did you ever think about hacking the box in which your computer came in to make it into a desk? While I’d love to say that’s what we’ve got here, this particular desk is made entirely from corrugated cardboard, but wasn’t made from the actual cardboard box the computer shipped in. Still, it’s pretty cool.
The social marketing company Goodstuph created this computer desk for HP to promote their 27″ all-in-one Z1 Workstation PC. The desk ships inside of a small carrying box, and easily assembles to form a desk capable of holding 66 lbs, more than enough for the average user.
In addition to its one-piece smooth cardboard top, an additional 250 individual cardboard slats are used to form an interlocking honeycomb structure to support the full weight of the workstation.
The completed desk looks pretty amazing, though it probably wouldn’t hold up to many coffee spills.
