Industrial designer Adrian Candela was overwhelmed by the packing waste stacked in his living room after a recent move and being in need of a nightstand and not wanting to spend any more money, he turned the old boxes into new furniture.
His Nit (Catalan for “night”) nightstand is now 8 months old (it was a Christmas gift for his girlfriend) and it is still standing (it’s even had water spilt on it). Inspired by how easy the process was to upcycle his corrugated fiberboard, Candela created a simple step-by-step assembly guide that he has made available for free online so that others too could turn their furniture waste into side tables.
