Designer Wei-Chih Hsu‘s build-it-yourself D-Bike is a flat-pack, cardboard kid’s bicycle that is assembled much like a jigsaw. All of the bike’s components are punched out from a pre-cut, reinforced honeycomb cardboard sheet, and then simply fixed into their correct spots to create a sweet new two-wheeler for a tot! The D-Bike is a 2012 Red Dot Design award winner.

Hoping to make some big noise for a little car, Mini Cooper tapped artist Bartek Elsner to design and construct a giant boombox made of cardboard. Debuting at the International Radio Festival in Zürich, the massive structure acted as a shell for the car, which could be seen through a open space in the back of the blaster. Made primarily to showcase the car’s sound system, the vehicle’s speakers pumped noise to passing crowds through its elaborate retro costume.
