When we were kids, one of the best playthings you could ask for was a giant cardboard box: it was a fort, a spaceship, or just a blank canvas for painting and drawing. The clever folks at Dutch design group Kidsonroof have elevated the form of the humble box, but maintained all of the creative possibilities with the Bo Buro desk + stools. Made out of cardboard, it gives the wee-ones a workspace of their own, but should they tire of its practical uses, it can be easily overturned or reconfigured for more fanciful functions. When the versatile Bo Buro’s met the end of its usefulness inside, it can be thrown into the compost pile or recycling bin outside, which truly makes it the gift that keeps on giving.
