When a person is moving rapidly to a new home to
problems in his other location... but doesn't have too
what charities can do, is provide temporary emergency
funiture. However it takes a lot of space to store second
hand funiture for these situation. Plus the transport
logistics is an issue as well.
What would do well, is a set of easy to fold and set-up
furnitures like tables, chairs and beds.
Being flatpack, easy to cut, will make storing these at
various crisis centre very economical.
There are other cardboard furniture out there already.
But the focus of this, is cost, speed, and storage.
Charities don't have enough money, they need to act
So unlike these commercial cardboard furniture, it may
not look as pretty, but is simple and cheap and

||A furniture charity? I think it's called Craigslist:Free
||+ Craigslist, but cardboard furniture is interesting too if
you can find the right use.
||Looks like it's already been done. See "room in a box". It's
cheap, ugly and packs small: just what you ordered.
||Craigslist is great for picking up / disposing of still-useful items on the cheap/free, however without 'net access, transportation, moving help, the stuff simply isn't directly accessible without a charity's intervention.
||[+] for the thought, but cardboard probably isn't the best choice.
||I think mofosyne might be from one of those regions where people are very thin, usually dry and sit down carefully. Where I am from, people are very fat, usually moist, and hurl themselves aggressively at the furniture.
||mofosyne, everything ok with you life?
||We had a book about how to make cardboard furniture
when we were first together. We never used it but
apparently [grayure] did so about twenty years previously.
It was okay but they fell to bits quickly.
||Presumably, the trick is to keep mending it with duct
tape, until eventually you have duct tape furniture.
