The bed frames in the Athletes Village at this year Tokyo Olympic will be made of cardboard. Sturdy cardboard. Those beds can stand up to 200 kilograms, clarified Takashi Kitajima, the general administrator of the Athletes Village, speaking through an interpreter. Surely no Tokyo Olympic athlete weighs that much. He also took into account the opportunity of a wild room festivity after, say, a gold-medal victory.

“They are stronger than wooden beds,” Kitajima said.
The only bed frames will be recycled into paper products after the games. The mattress mechanisms the mattresses are not made of cardboard will be cast-off into plastic goods. The mattress is broken up into three separate sections, and the firmness of each can be familiar. The idea was to use resources that could be re-created after the Olympic and Paralympics. But the cardboard edges and cares should give the rooms a spartan look.
Organizers presented off the beds and a few other fittings on Thursday at their headquarters. The whole Athletes Village complex will be completed in June. The Tokyo Olympic open on July 24 followed by the Paralympics on August 25. The organizing committee was thinking about recyclable items, and the bed was one of the ideas, Kitajima explained, crediting local Tokyo Olympic sponsor Airweave for the performance.
“The wood and cardboard would each break if you jumped on them,” he said.
Organizers say this is the first time that the beds and comforter in the Athletes Village have been made of renewable resources. The Athletes Village being built alongside Tokyo Bay will contain 18,000 beds for the Tokyo Olympic and be composed of 21 apartment towers. Even more building structure is being planned in the next several years.
The real estate says the units will be retailed off afterward, or rented, with sale prices starting from about 54 million yen ($730,000) and climbing to three or four times that much. Some fear the rooms will flood the marketplace, perhaps impacting property values. The units will be sold off by several real estate companies. Ads suggest many of the units will be to some extent larger than a typical apartment in Tokyo, which is about 60-70 square meters.
