The designers at DS Smith created this artistic Lexus from 1,700 pieces of recycled corrugated paperboard. The interior, body, doors, headlights and even the wheels were laser-cut and then manually glued together. In all, the five designers on the team took just over 12 weeks. An electric engine in an aluminium steel frame ensures that the vehicle can even be moved around.
A few years ago Nimrod Elmish from Israel had the same idea and designed the very first cardboard bike from material costing no more than EUR 12. The bicycle is fire- and waterproof, and the inventor says it is just as easy to assemble as an IKEA shelf.
