Being undervalued for many years as a cheap and unstable material, being mainly used as a structural element in doors with some applications in airplane industry and protective packaging, the paper honeycomb has recently entered the select area of architectural design. Perhaps you wondered how can Ikea furniture be so strong and so light in the same time. Paper honeycomb is the answer. I wrote in a previous article about Xanita’s x-board, a product also made with paper honeycomb.
Being such a versatile material it’s no wonder that it got into the high class of architectural design: it’s light, it’s strong, it’s (or can be) green, can be recycled and let’s not forget the main reason of this article, it looks fantastic (check out the pictures below):
