Our designs are 100% cardboard and 100% made in the USA. We are located in Orlando Florida with national reach.  It goes without saying, how excited we are about this initiative, and we are working hard to provide you with the highest standards.

These 3 architects go back a long way, it was during College where they discovered their passion for sustainable designs. Since then, Cartonlab has become a global reference in the use of cardboard being awarded for both its designs and entrepreneurial aspects. Featured in the European and Latin-america media.

Runner up Emporia National (Spain) Award for Ephemeral Architecture

In 2014, we were recognized for our contribution to the Ephemeral Architecture movement in Spain.  This prize goes to the core of our proposal of CARDBOARD use at events or exhibitions. CARDBOARD is a simple yet endurable material. Thanks to it, we are able to create and play with a variety of forms, colors, and shapes in our designs. It is an alternative to other material with higher impact, and more complex to handle.
