the challenge:

design a product with zero waste


Cardboard tubing is a strangely underrated material. Soft to the touch yet structurally strong. Distinct and outspoken, yet neutral in tone and form, thus fitting in almost any type of interior, industrial or a more homely setting.

R16 is our homage to this beautiful and versatile material. By applying laser cuts to a cardboard tube, the integrity of form and material is preserved, yet it's potential is fully used;

It is both packing material and elegant luminary - R16; open, straightforward, efficient… and without waste.
