Folding desk

An innovative New Zealand design has brought a whole new meaning to "hot desking". It's a piece of cardboard that looks like a box your TV might come in. Instead it folds out into a standing desk that can withstand the weight of a human and can be carried anywhere. No screws, glue or tape were used to make the desk, only some kiwi number 8 wire ingenuity,  The four main pieces snap together to create an instant workspace

"You're an urban nomad right now. You can go and do whatever you want and set up anywhere," says Cardboard Desk creator Fraser Callaway. The Cardboard Desk weighs less than 7kgs and can be set up in under a minute.
