12 People on a Cardboard Bed? No problem!

After we put some cardboard decoration and cardboard lighting into our home it’s now time for some serious stuff: Would you dare to sleep on a bed that’s made of cardboard?

First, let’s see the apparent advantage besides its low carbon footprint: If you have ever helped a friend moving, and he or she didn’t happen to live on the ground floor, the bed was surely one of the most unpopular items to transport. Now, a paper bed weighs only as much as the boxes you would normally use to move your wooden bed in and can be set up in 10 minutes. Nevertheless, Karton’s cardboard bed can handle a ton of weight which is about the weight of 12 adults (see the video proof). So there is no need to worry about turbulent nights.

What I probably like best about the design is that the same bed can be set up as single, double, queen or king size bed (120-180cm W x 30cm H x 203cm D), depending on the way one folds the inner supporting structure.

On the downside, I’d be a bit worried about the ventilation of my mattress since the bed has a closed surface. It’s to be proved if stability can be kept by cutting some holes on the top. Again, the bed can be easily colored to blend in with the rest of the bedroom furniture like this wonderful cardboard shelf system.
