If you think of throwing out your used books, think again. Aside from giving or donating it to the less fortunate ones, Dutch designer Jan Van Hoof has exhibited a wall made of cut-up books. The idea the designer has will not only provide new excellent and artistic design but rather, it helps a lot in making our garbage bin free from those bulk books that we intended to throw. In this way, Hoof does not only create a masterpiece of art but he also made a step closer to a cleaner and greener environment. The finish product looks amazing and I am pretty sure that many will appreciate it and will use it in the future.
Working in an office is something very normal to everybody. However, working on a cardboard office is something new to me. This is what the French artist Paul Coudamy has designed in one of the advertising agency in Paris, France. He was able to create furniture out of it, twenty work stations, partitions, meeting rooms and storage with the use of a 4cm thick water resistant honeycomb cardboard mounted with glue and tape. The lighting of the said cardboard office is made from umbrellas. I found this masterpiece as a truly work of art and creativeness. However, I had doubt of the cardboard smell. Normally I do not like the smell of it and it feels like odor pollution will take place. Overall the product design is great.
In the next few months, LED replacement bulbs are going to be released and various companies are working hard in perfecting for it. Moreover, some of the companies work ahead than those larger lighting companies and one of them is the Lighting Science, which created and introduced the Sol R38, which is equivalent to 50-60W incandescent lamps. In addition, the Sol R38 looks weird with its fins that works as hit sinks that drive away the heat generated from the back of the LED. Another company that work in advance is the Journee, which offers the Lotus Luminaries in different colors and looks like a spaceship.
Shelves, tables and chairs are just a few of the furniture that we need in our home. Having it green and innovative is not easy but will surely have a great result. Boards did it. With the statement of “No Waste. No Rules. No Tools.” The zBoards is very conventional and functional. With the use of a super adhesive tape, you can put together the blocks and form your desired furniture or shelves. Another great feature of the zBoards is that it weighs 60 percent less than particleboard. This out of the box idea is perfect for any contemporary homes all over.
Living green is a very rewarding thing to do. You will not only help saving the earth, but rather you helped yourself as well. One of the green things that will let you help the community and yourself is the Barnacle Chair by Ania Wagner. The Barnacle Chair is made of sustainable wood and lined with an industrial felt. One can sit into it or if not, they can turn it upside down and lean over together with friends and families while having a good chat with each other. The features it has, the Barnacle Chair is not only green and artistic, but it is also functional and got a modern design.
Patterns are nice especially if it has creative and artistic designs in it. However, it would be even nicer if one can create pattern out of a wooden material. The idea sounds eco-friendly and that is what Minotaur did. They have created a set of cubes that consists of 16 wooden cubes that has the ability to form great number of patterns. The cubes are nicely laser cut by a wooden toy maker in Kyushu, Japan, using Japanese maple and White Ash, which is really a good combination. Patterns looks nice and I find it perfect as a house décor as part of the interior design.
When we speak of CDs, what comes first to our minds is a music and movie CD. However, with the technologies that are present today, CDs are already rarely used when we tend to listen to our favorite music or watch our favorite movie. We can now easily have them handy with our MP3s, MPEG or MP4 player. And because of these CDs are now stacked in our room. To make our CDs stacked in a nice order, the wooden X CD holder is born. You can now have your CDs arranged and pile in one place. This will not only let your have your CDs organized but it will also let you became eco-friendly since this is hand made and the materials used is out from bamboo.
Being Eco-friendly is fun especially if you did it without compromising the beauty and great designs. This is what the Moso Bamboo Pendant Lamp of Brian Schmitt is all about. Manufactured by hand from the US and is made from bamboo, there is no doubt that this pendant lamp is an eco friendly one. The Moso Bamboo Pendant lamp is composed of shade panels, bamboo frame, and cord, which is very basic and yet it still brings out the beauty and elegance in it. What is good about the Moso Bamboo is that it can be packed flat, shipped to your desired destination, and can be easily assembled without using any fastener or glue.
The Sea Urchin is a known sea creatures that we love to eat but we normally throw away its skin that is pointed and tend to be harmful. However, Dutch designer Rachel van Outvorst changed everything bad that we think about the sea urchin. She made a very attractive design out of it, and the result is truly a remarkable work of art, which is the sea urchin chair. The circular design of the sea urchin chair is not new anymore however, what is amazing about it is that it is handmade out of 8,000 cable ties. If you want to have a unique lounging in a chair made of unique and eco-friendly material, try the sea urchin chair now.
I never knew that shopping carts could also be a useful chair as what the Junior Year student did in his final project. The chair was made with no welding work done. All he had done is cut some parts of it and bent those areas that needed to bend until he came up with this creative and eco-friendly chair. I hope that now that we already have the idea of the shopping cart turns into a useful chair, no shopping carts will be thrown away anymore. Maybe some painting job can be done to those carts who already have some rusts or those who are slightly worn out already.
