2 | This Cheap, Strong Cardboard Standing Desk Will Let You Ditch Your Deadly Office Sitting | Co.Exist | ideas + impact

Looking for a cheap and sturdy standing desk? There are DIY options. But if you've always wanted to have some cardboard furniture in your home or office (and who hasn't?), try one of the standing desks from Chairigami.

Entrepreneur and recent Yale graduate Zach Rotholz has attracted plenty of attention for his line of corrugated cardboard furniture. Called Chairigami, the furniture is recyclable, lightweight, flat-packed, and cheaper than conventional designs. It's popular at big events, which often require large amounts of furniture to be taken in and out quickly (Rothholz recently supplied Chairigami furniture to the Feast, a conference in New York City). But Rotholz has to make all of the furniture by hand, restricting Chairigami's potential for growth.
