The color changing Chameleon Cabin is made of thick corrugated paper
Generally it is seen that most of the appreciation of any architectural space is taken by its visually pleasing exteriors. This simple and tiny little architecture project dubbed as the Chameleon Cabin also gathers appreciation of the onlookers because it tends to change color when seen from either side. Mattias Lind, an architect working at the Swedish designer firm White Arkitekter, designed this corrugated paper cabin in collaboration with branding agency Happy F + B. The designer has printed the folds to resemble black marble on one side and white marble on the other to make it appear different when viewed from either side.
This architecture project, Chameleon Cabin was specially designed to demonstrate the capabilities of a local printing firm Göteborgstryckeriet. The interiors of the cabin are painted in a contrasting bright yellow color. The window reveals are also painted in the same warm color giving it a more visually striking effect.
The Chameleon Cabin looks quite like a Swedish friggebod, which is a small shed measuring less than 15 square meters in area. A two millimeter thick corrugated paper, produced by Swedish company EuroWell was used to design this marvelous paper cabin. 95 modules were used to create the entire structure which was connected together by using tabs and slots. Although this tiny cabin has no particular use yet, it can serve as a pretty playhouse for your kids.
