Whoever thinks this is a great idea obviously doesn't have cats.

I'm sorry, but your authority is not recognized in Fort Kickass.

This furniture seems appropriate for something temporary, where hauling in real furniture, even flatpack, might be problematic.  If it biodegrades as expected then it might make good stuff for expeditions where hauling out everything at the end is difficult, science field work like digs, or even field medical clinic work where one might not even want to bring the furniture home afterward and where its continued use might actually be dangerous.

For anything long term, no.  Just no.  Too much risk of damage from spills, critters trying to take up residence, bumps and thumps from normal life, not going to cut it.  It was perfect for the Olympic Village since in a COVID-era they were going to dispose of everything inside anyway.  Much more than a few months and I don't expect pieces to survive well when subjected to moderately harsh conditions and treatment.

It's a big improvement over fiberboard.

That stuff weighs a fark-ton when you have to drag it out after a flood.

Cardboard furniture will go great with this fall's fashion.
