Cardboard Bar

Hey hey. Can't seem to keep up with all the design happenings in the world right now... London Design Festival coverage is all over the net and I am struggling to keep up!

Anyway these images from Designboom grabbed me instantly... yeah yeah cardboard boxes again but the execution of this temporary 'Cardboard Bar' is great and a little more slick than the usual low-budget cardboard installation efforts :) Love those pops of orange amongst all the brown 'bricks'... so simple but so effective. Not sure how the exterior elements will hold up in the London weather though...

This is by interior architectural consultants B3 Designers, and was constructed on site at their East London studio. According to Designboom, for the opening night guests were served cocktails in cardboard cups and encouraged to wear cardboard clothing!? Coolness.


  1. I am strangely excited by this cardboard bar!

    What a cool idea.

    It reminds me of my childhood building cubbys out of cardboard boxes...but this time with alcohol!

  2. I hope they don't allow smoking in London bars!!!

    i think this is uber cool!
