This clever design combines a shape that is taken from the Volvo's taillight cluster and laminated cardboard. The sleek design comes apart into three pieces: the lounge chair, the ottoman (also a magazine rack), and the side table. It is definitely a green design. Since it is more of a lounge chair, we could see it on a patio. The only concern might be its longevity when left outside.
