Outside the Box

You’re invited to an open house featuring NuBe Green’s repurposed cardboard furniture

What’s next? Movie theater seating made out of those boxes that soy milk comes in?

Local design duo Graypants (we featured their slice chair and more here), whose repurposed cardboard lighting fixtures you’ve seen all over town from the bar at Vermillion to your cousin Ray’s rad pad, used their favorite material to craft a custom headboard for the Broadway, a new Built Green 3-star certified building overlooking Cal Anderson Park at 1620 Broadway.

You’re invited to an open house there, where a model unit is staged with cardboard furnishings from NuBe Green, including those aforementioned.

So go, on Thursday, June 3 between 4 and 8, and make yourself at home (use the building entrance off of Nagle Pl). It’s a cool opportunity to see innovative design work in a natural setting, and also to spy on new living quarters and imagine a world of fully sustainable cool.
