A BESPOKE CARDBOARD BOX
Cardboard is anything but another cutout. Set in Mumbai's central business district, the cafe
boasts an interior completely fabricated from recyclable and biodegradable materials. Local
design firm NUDES created nearly everything from the wall panels and lampshades to the
chairs and cantilevered table from millions of layers of corrugated cardboard. "The idea was
literally to think outside the cardboard box," Nuru Karim, founder and principal of NUDES,
said in an interview.
While cardboard might be thought of as a flimsy material, it offered the design team
certain advantages. Its lightweight layers could be easily shaped into sinuous forms that wrap
the walls, while its corrugated structure made it both strong and an excellent sound absorber.
Preparing the dining surfaces was as simple as applying a wax waterproofing compound. Karim
believes the design concept is more than a gimmick. "Hopefully this cafe could start becoming
a dialogue for the way we treat our natural resources, the way we treat our planet, the way we
consume, and the way we recycle," he said.

Cardboard cafe features an interior entirely crafted out of cardboard-from the walls
to the dining tables.

The world's best airport just added
a jewel to its crown.
In April, Changi Airport
Singapore opened the Jewel, a
mixed-use wonderland of retail and
dining framed by engineering feats
that have brought nature indoors.
While travelers and shoppers chow
down at the nation's first Shake
Shack, they can stare out at the
HSBC Rain Vortex, the world's
tallest indoor waterfall. Afterward,
they can burn off the calories at
the Shiseido Forest Valley,
an indoor natural habitat with
walking trails and plants from
around the world.
Airport officials hope that the
nearly $1.3 billion project-which
connects terminals at Changi
Airport-will draw more passengers
to Singapore or even encourage
those passing through to extend
their layovers just a bit longer to
enjoy the experience.
