HBL Kids Lifestyle: Carton Furniture Series by Riki Watanabe

Tuesday, 30 November 2010

Japanese industrial designer Riki Watanabe originally designed this set of children's furniture in 1965, and it's now being manufactured by Metropolitan Gallery Inc. Tokyo in a range of bright colours, just in time for Watanabe's 100th birthday next year. Each piece is made solely of folded cardboard and the set can be neatly packed away when not in use.
