2019 / Lund University

Kutti is a sustained way for you and your family to create any shape you like simply by using the templates printed on the packaging of  your purchased good or furniture. 

Cardboard is one of the most frequently used materials in the modern world and has been for over a century. 95% of manufactured cardboard boxes all over the world are discarded after a single-use. Especially with boxes used for shipping. Kutti is a fun way for kids and the family to solve this problem. Let's make packages reusable! The packaging of your purchased good or furniture can now be reused. Just follow the templates printed on the packaging. Simple take away the templates, join them together, and create different new shapes of your choice. The boxes that suit your taste and needs can be used in blocks of one to ninety ones and can be your favorite decoration /or your child's favorite toy.

Material - Cardboard

95% of manufactured cardboard boxes all over the world are discarded after a single-use. Especially with boxes used for shipping. Cardboard is a low-cost lightweight material easy to form with many eco-friendly qualities. A great option used by industries for shipping, packaging, and storage needs. Designs can include basic constructions for simple solutions, provide complex shapes, and can be folded into different forms and sizes to accommodate a wide variety of requirements. 

Brief  - "Explore the OFF THE GRID topic by developing anything that is independent of existing systems, but where you can connect within your community to share hardware, ideas, and good practices to create both individual and common value"
