Here Now, a Look at the World's Only All-Cardboard Office

As trendy ad agencies are wont to do, the offices of Amsterdam-based Nothing have taken an interiors approach that's a step toward the, uh, unusual. Most everything, including the walls, tables, shelving, and even support beams and stairs, at the firm—which, aptly, gets its name from the phrase, "taking nothing and turning it into something"—is made of cardboard, adding to the ever-lengthening list of structures (like cityscapes, cathedrals, and real-life towns) crafted from the stuff. Designers Joost van Bleiswijk and Alrik Koudenburg hope employees will alter and doodle on their masterpiece, but let's just hope they've invested in a good humidifier—nobody works well on a droopy desk.
