No need to panic! Simply wipe up the liquid on the cardboard with a dry cloth without detergent and let the rest air dry. As long as only a small area has become wet (example: 1 spilled glass of water), you do not need to worry about the stability of the cardboard furniture. However, your furniture should never be permanently exposed to moisture, as this can cause it to lose stability. Please check the stability of the furniture after each contact with liquid.
Our cardboard furniture is made exclusively from certified corrugated cardboard. This is made from 54 % to 80 % recycled material and is 100% recyclable. The remaining part consists of fresh paper fibres from sustainable forestry. Corrugated board is a natural product made from cellulose and corn or wheat-based adhesives. The inks used are solvent-free and neither toxic nor harmful to health. Thus, our cardboard furniture is an all-round ecological, harmless product.
This so-called "angel hair" in the top web of the corrugated board can occur during production when the die-cutting tool cuts out the corrugated board. This is not a material defect and is not a reason for complaint. Normally the angel hair is on the inside and should not be visible on the outside. Unfortunately, due to the thickness of the material we use, we cannot avoid this 100%. The only alternative would be to use a weaker quality of material, which in turn would have a negative effect on the stability. In any case, you don't need to worry about the quality and stability of the cardboard furniture - this is not affected in any way.
If your cardboard furniture is too pale for you, you can give it a coat of paint to your taste. You can use acrylic paint, for example, which you apply thinly and evenly with a foam roller. Of course, we cannot guarantee the perfect end result. So it's best to test the paint on an inconspicuous area beforehand.
If at some point your cardboard furniture has had its day and is no longer suitable for passing on, it can simply be disposed of in the waste paper bin. The material then flows back into the raw material cycle and can be processed into new corrugated cardboard.
Our furniture is not comparable with moving boxes or shipping packaging. This standard packaging is produced from low-quality cardboard in millions of copies and is correspondingly cheap. RIAB cardboard furniture, on the other hand, is made in Germany in significantly smaller quantities from the best available corrugated cardboard qualities and assembled by hand. The result is high-quality furniture that you will enjoy for a long time.
Each of our pieces of furniture is designed as a fully-fledged alternative to a conventional piece of furniture and is manufactured to a correspondingly high quality. With good treatment, you can expect a durability of about 10 years.
Due to its high recycled content (54 % to 80 %), corrugated cardboard furniture uses very few resources. The fresh paper fibres that provide the necessary stability of the furniture come exclusively from sustainable forestry. The furniture can be fully recycled at the end of its life cycle. Simply throw it in the waste paper bin so that the material flows back into the recycling loop. In addition to the low consumption of resources, cardboard furniture releases many times less CO2 and is more climate-friendly than conventional furniture. For example: the Bed 2.0 has a significantly lower environmental impact than a conventional bed. The CO2 footprint - and thus the contribution to global warming - is 280 times lower, it uses 8,000 times less energy and transport is also 4 times more climate-friendly thanks to its light weight.
No, you don't need a separate slatted frame. Simply place the mattress on the bed. The rhombus construction and the high permeability of the corrugated board ensure sufficient air circulation. By the way: the German consumer protection organisation Stiftung Warentest (link) explicitly advises its readers to use a rigid grate as a base. That's exactly what our cardboard bed does.
An excellent complement to our sustainable cardboard bed is our sustainable natural latex mattress. Generally, all mattress types except futons are compatible with our bed. However, make sure that the mattress is at least 15 cm high and medium-firm to firm.
If you have a very smooth floor in your bedroom, such as parquet or laminate, it can happen that the bed slides a little. If this bothers you, a classic anti-slip underlay for carpets can help. These are available very inexpensively online or at your local DIY store.
