Kartonart - The ecological trade fair booth designer

What we do

Trade shows and events

Our trade fair stands are always custom-made to best suit your products. 

We can direct-print your walls, design special display cabinets and shelf units, incorporate LED lamps and strips to highlight an object, laser-cut your logo into the wall, or do any crazy design idea you may have.

We can fully furnish your stand, with every piece serving your best presence at the show.

Museums and galleries

Kartonart walls, pedestals, display cabinets and other units can serve as permanent furnishing as well as for temporary shows

Museums and galleries using our walls and pedestals are happy to have an extra storage room free, because our structures can be stored flat-packed between exhibitions.

Book shelves and display.

Offices and shops have the freedom with our products to change the display and the spatial arrangement of any or all units, without dismantling the  structure.

Sandra Caya, Pavilion Manager, IUCN Congress Honolulu

World Conservation Congress Hawaii, printed cardboard pavilion walls, reusable.

 "The KartonArt team worked hard to make our event unique and special, and the positive feedback from our participants proved their success. Our needs were complex, yet Edith and her colleagues were able to address the many individual requests for our designs with creativity and with a drive for perfection. I especially enjoyed working with the team to design interactive installations for our space, and their advice in this area was excellent. KartonArt's focus on environmentally friendly products was of huge importance for us as a conservation organisation, and ultimately their products fully met our wishes both in design and function." 

Rudolf Klein, Professor of Architectural History

Cardboard exhibition walls printed, architecture history exhibition.

 " To be honest I did not trust that the installation will make it through all the 20 exhibitions in 15 towns and 4 countries. After 3 years of touring the panels are still in impeccable shape.

Testimonials

"In 2005 at the exhibition "400 years of French painting" we had 320.000 visitors from December to February. Both the cloakroom and the giftshop - though getting worn towards the end - they stood up to the challenge. Had I not seen it I wouldn't have believed it."

Archeo furniture and Grandfather Clocks

Cardboard clock.

Archeo furniture

The Kartonart Archeo furniture were inspired by ancient clay pots restored with new clay distinguished from the original old fragments. The once glorious old furniture that are beyond repair find new life by being completed with cardboard. 

Each Archeo piece is unique.

These furniture evoke the atmosphere of good old times, yet give the feel of contemporary eco-design to make you comfortable in the passage between past and future.

Grandfather Clocks

The Grandfather Clock project offers a contemporary interpretation to an old object.

A relic from the past, the respectful time-measuring item was regarded for centuries as symbol of established wealth, stability and prosperity. Kartonart Grandfather Clocks aim to re-establish the concept in contemporary interiors in an eco-chic manner.
