Basically opensource furniture designs that are designed to be easily mass produced, and does not require much equipment to start.

1. Flatpackable
2. Cheap material
3. Easy to make without much tools

Was interested in the concept of a fold able desk made of cardboard for schools in under privileged areas.

Got me thinking, how much of an issue is affordable furniture is in developing countries. Would open design that anybody can mass produce using cardboard or other materials be a solution?

       11 Furniture [link] beat you to it. Or maybe Ikea just hasn't sued them yet.

       Yes, but the asbestos desk idea got rejected pretty quickly...
