Strong cardboard Storage boxes
Everyone who has gone away to university has done it- the truck rentals, the schlep to IKEA, the dragging heavy furniture up the stairs. Then, at the end of the school year, there are those piles of junk on the street, forlorn flatpacks that weren't worth carting home. As the designers of this Room in a Box note:

The room in a box might change all that. It is a whole suite of furniture, including bed with storage, chair, desk and dresser, everything but the mattress. It's all cleverly designed out of cardboard and sets up in minutes. Judging from the video, it is surprisingly strong. It's recycled and recyclable.
