Called Pupa and inspired by natural habitats, such as beehives, cocoons and spiders nests, the installation has the appearance of a shelter and references the cavernous shape of a church.

‘We wanted to explore the structural properties of cardboard,’ says Liam Hopkins, designer of Pupa. ‘The design creates an acoustic barrier in the headquarters, so people can get away from the rest of the office.’

This is a great example of upcycling and recontextualising materials to create an architectural design. For more on how people are embracing cradle-to-cradle production, read our microtrend.
