Check Out This Gorgeous $32 Cardboard Desk Concept



Looking resplendent with its iMac adornment, this super-cheap desk is entirely made out of cardboard.

It was designed by Hong Kong born Savio Ku, who is at the University of Portsmouth in the UK, as part of his final year studying 3D design.

Cult of Mac got in touch with Savio to ask him more about it. He said:

“This is my final project in the final year of my course. This table only consists of folded cardboard, the designs are all drawn by hand and cut by hand as well.

“The entire desk is slotted together without any extra fixtures, it can be taken apart and folded flat for easy storage. It also has two foldaway shelves on each side to store items. It is 1500mm long, 700mm wide, and 741mm high.

“The aim of this project was to create a cheap and simple desk by using cheap materials such as cardboard. The materials cost of this desk comes to about £20 ($32).”

Savio has more photos of the desk, including some taken during earlier phases of the project, in this Flickr set.
