Enter David Graas, a designer who consciously considers the afterlife of his designs.

FYS (Finish Your Self) junior, 2007
Corrugated cardboard

FYS junior is a puzzle chair that little ones can fix up together with parents. The chair is 100% recyclable and uses a large part of its own packaging.

Don't spill your coffee table, 2007
Corrugated cardboard

A coffee table made up from corrugated cardboard parts that are flatpacked and slide together for easy assembly.

not a box, 2007

The lamp shade doubles up as the packaging that holds its parts within, including bulb, plug, cable and manual. Just cut off the top and bottom flap and install. Minimising wastage, a graphical suggestion of what the lamp could have been is cut out to let light through.
