Cardboard Tube Art

Cardboard tubing, whether it be from toilet paper rolls or industrial strength tubing, is a versatile medium that many artists and designers have experimented with. Below are some amazing examples of what is possible with a cardboard tube.

Cardboard tubing makes a cheap and stylish wall too. The photo below is from the studio of London-based stylist Stephen Mann. (Link via Geddem)


This gorgeous chair by Matthew Laws is, surprise surprise, also made out of cardboard tubing. Check out Matthew’s website to learn about his process of constructing this well made and stylish chair.

    I was very impressed by the tube chair and tube jungle zoo. The first one, (zoo, Im guessing?) was very inspiring and very unique in its own way. The tube chair really caught my eye, as well. All of these were amazing but the zoo and chair were the ones I gasped at! Thank you!
