IS CARDBOARD A FRAGILE MATERIAL?
No, the cardboard we use is of a higher quality than traditional corrugated cardboard. It can last years and years, especially if treated and processed to further improve its strength.
IS THERE SUCH A THING AS FLAMEPROOF CARDBOARD?
Certain varieties of honeycomb cardboard have a “Class 1” fire-resistance rating, that is, the level required for exhibitions.
HOW CAN CARDBOARD BE WATERPROOFED?
We pair the cardboard with other more resistant and waterproof materials – albeit always natural and recyclable – such as Linoleum (completely natural, made from wood flour, linseed oil, resins and natural fibres) or Greencast (a recyclable Plexiglass made from old recycled acrylic sheets).
CAN A STAND BE DISMANTLED AND RE-ASSEMBLED?
Absolutely, you just need to be gentle when assembling and dismantling it.
IS CARDBOARD THE ONLY DESIGN MATERIAL YOU USE?
No, materieunite began as a design experiment founded on the basic principles of sustainability: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Research into materials is ongoing, and with it the study of the opportunities they can offer for good Design projects.
