This Mumbai cafe is made completely out of cardboard

A newly opened cafe in Mumbai, India, is an excellent example of eco-friendly architecture, with almost everything inside – right from the tables and chairs to lamp shades and menu holders – created out of recyclable cardboard.

Since cardboard naturally consists of about 50% air, the material is lightweight, durable, inexpensive, and exceptional at absorbing sound, which makes it ideal for busy restaurant atmospheres. In addition to the cafe being made out of sustainable materials, it also specializes in serving organic and locally-sourced meals.

The cafe was designed by Nuru Karim, the founder of the Indian architectural firm Nudes. It only took the architects a total of 7 months to design and build the café – 3 months for planning and 4 months for construction.
