Breathing Life into Old Cardboard Boxes

We used old cardboard boxes sourced from Bunnings to create our corrugated cardboard inserts. While cutting out the triangles our attention was caught by the handling symbols printed on the cardboard; we felt that it was a nice connection to the instructional drawings we will have to produce for own kitset shelter. It was also nice to consider where the boxes had come from; that the products they once contained are the ‘kitset pieces’ which make up domestic interior spaces.
