Samsung announced that they will be using a new form of ecologically-friendly packaging for their new line of “lifestyle televisions”, namely The Serif, The Sero and The Frame.

These recyclable cardboard boxes are different in that each one has a cutting pattern to transform the box into another useful household item, such as a cat house or furniture accessories. Instructions for each build is available on the Samsung website.

Samsung has applied a dot matrix design on each side of its eco-friendly corrugated cardboard boxes, allowing customers to cut the boxes more easily and assemble them into various other uses, such as small end tables or houses for pets.
