We all need to save on cost when it comes to building our furniture pieces and the Sustainable Mail Bookeand Storage Shelf by Dor Keenan is a great example of cost saving piece of furniture. Because of the earth friendly mind of young designer Dor Keenan, the mail bookeand storage shelf is created made of recycled building mailbox.
Each of the mailbox unit creates an individual space working as a functional storage for many users. With Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle as important part of his design, Israel graduate Dor Keenan was able to recycle the Plexiglas of his old mailbox and have it as the useful shelf of his creation.
A shelving system with a hexagonal design is very rare and we at IGreenSpot find the Cracked Shelf System a unique one. It has the hexagonal type 8 design that made it a unique shelving system. This shelf system will surely stand out in every home the moment they are placed alongside with those traditional shelving system with the classic horizontal or vertical design. The design of the cracked sheld created an asymmetrical look, which make it even more stylish and catchy. The shelf is made of rectangular pieces of wood modules and these modules can be combined in any formation or direction seamlessly.
If you find the design is perfect enough for the most artistic human hand, this is because from its general shape to the smallest part of the shelf, all have been designed carefully using a trusted computer software. The shelf has the 1.5 mm thick steel that serves as the connector. These steels are laser cut and folded with the help of CNC machinery.
We now have a lot of eco-friendly furniture widely available in the market, one of them is Rewrite Desk by Iannone Design.

You might wonder why it fits, simply because, the desk is a brand new furniture piece with modern design but is made of reclaimed materials. Meaning the materials used to complete the desk are old.
