A university design student has given a new meaning to the term "thinking outside the box" by creating a range of recyclable cardboard furniture.
Lewis Barnes came up with the idea after getting fed-up with having to pack and unpack his belongings at the start and end of every term at Coventry University.
The 22-year-old, from Milton Keynes, said: " I've designed the furniture to help out students who live in rented accommodation who often have to buy basic furniture for their studies.
"The desk design eliminates the need to have to pack every time the student has to leave rental accommodation at the end of term. The handle on the stand allows items to remain in the desk, allowing quick and easy moving."
He added: "I have used cardboard so after its useful life it can be easily recycled and also helps keep the costs low, making it ideal for a temporary lifespan.
"The idea comes after many years of packing my belongings to go back home at the end of term. Not only do you have to pack to leave but you also have to unpack when you get home.
"By living 'out of the box' you can just simply move without the hassle."
The furniture is part of a range of items from final year product design students which go on display at the university from this Friday.
