If you’re looking for something both unique and somewhat green to protect your laptop and you happen to have £180+ (appx. $265 USD) lying around to spend on your little heart’s desire, you might just be interested in Giles Miller’s amazing cardboard laptop case design. If, like me, you aren’t exactly flush with cash for things you don’t need, it might be time to start learning how to shape any leftover corrugated cardboard you have around the house.
It’s not hard to see why these cardboard cases go for so much; the subtle design is understated brilliance. But in my experience, corrugated cardboard isn’t the most resilient material around–and imagine getting it wet–and it would really be a heartbreaking experience to bend or tear your very expensive designer laptop case. Being an artist, and thus able to make these things yourself, must be a real bonus.
A personalized case, by the way, is even more expensive, alas. Guess the best things in life aren’t so free after all.
