Candela’s DIY cardboard furniture with free IKEA-like instructions

When industrial designer Adrian Candela moved to a new city sometime back, he was stunned to see the packing waste piled inside his living room. He just needed a nightstand, but was in no mood to spend another single penny for the same. Therefore, he started making furniture out of old boxes. The Nit (Catalan equivalent of “night”) nightstand was designed by Candela as a Christmas gift for his girlfriend eight months back and it’s still functioning fine. Inspired by the ease of upcycling corrugated fiberboard, Candela is now offering step-by-step assembly guide, similar to that of IKEA, for free, so that people can also make something useful out of their furniture waste.

All you need to create Nit nightstand is 2.5 mm sheets of cardboard, a utility knife, a pencil, a triangle and a cutting board. Candela believes it’s good to make your own stuff rather than buying every other thing from the stores.

    Great list man! These appliances are must have to every modern kitchen. One appliance I can suggest to the list are kitchen pop-up power outlets like this http://power-tower.com.au/product/powertower/ for charging or providing power outlets to kitchen appliances.

    Nice try, the original design from which this fixture is derived is from Toronto CASTOR DESIGNS. Your ripped off version doesn’t allow light to glow to the ends of the tubes.


    So where do I buy one?
