From the designers, “Wikkelhouse is a flexible concept. Individual segments are linked together into a house, a fair booth, a showroom or an office using invisible links. Fiction Factory is a creative and innovative company in Amsterdam and can be your partner for a tailor made version.

The base of the Wikkelhouse is ‘virgin fiber paperboard’, which is made from Scandinavian trees. This so called goldboard, is wrapped around a huge mold, with a method patented by RS Developments, while environmentally friendly glue is added. This creates a tough and insulating sandwich structure. By this wrapping process a heat insulation and construction method are integrated in a sustainable way. Afterwards each segment is finished with a protective film and a shell of wooden slats.”
