I have visited Ikea for research into the construction of cardboard. I found it really useful to see a top retail brands way of attaching the card together. I noticed some was stitched, some had slots cut out so it could fit together with no attachments. I also looked at ways of strengthening cardboard and it would seem Ikea often add layers of thick cardboard behind and then have a paper glued on top, this particular box also flat packed which made it ultra portable and mobile. I also liked the box which had draws as I hadn't previously thought about this. It seems like quite an easy thing to make once the shelves are constructed it could slot into place.
