Wood pallets have been around for decades as mechanisms for shipping and storing larger items (among other things).

Of course this means that almost no wall inside is flat but I suspect interior designers are up for a new challenge nowadays. Congrats to Andrés Silanes, Fernando Valderrama and Carlos Bañón.
