Desktop Gadgets Cleverly Constructed From Cardboard
The team behind Newfoldr wants to cut back on waste through clever designs
The minds behind Newfoldr love gadgets—but they want to find a way to make their gadgets’ designs more eco-conscious.
As a solution, they designed a series of objects made out of cardboard. So far, these include the TRIM desktop speaker, TRIM Bluetooth speaker and DARU Lamp. Each piece also uses a unique design. The Bluetooth speaker, for example, includes a “capacitive touch power switch on the side” that “senses your fingers through the paper case.”
As the Newfoldr website explains, the team wanted to use a recyclable, easily accessible material. That resulted in the idea for creating corrugated cardboard products, and also building a community to share designs.
