Mafoombey - a space for music

Winner of the Habitare design contest at the University of Art and Design in Helsinki in 2005, Mafoombey is a space for music that explores the acoustics of cardboard. The 2.5 cubic meters listening room is composed of 720 hand-cut pieces of cardboard, stacked without adhesive. Built for experiencing music, the space includes a sitting area for two to three people and a DVD player to play music. Energy-saving lights and surround-sound speakers are built into the 360-layered structure, with one central wire leading out to plug in for electricity.

Mafoombey is designed by Martti Kalliala and Esa Ruskeepää while they were attending the architecture school at Helsinki University of Technology, with the help of architect friend Martin Lukasczyk. All three are busy building their international resumes
