Germoir Packaging by Catherine Bourdon

Germoir is an excellent and earth friendly project by Catherine Bourdon. An envelope serves as a packaging that follows and assists the stages of life of a plant, and later transforms itself into a germinator. The envelope includes the dirt and the plant’s seeds, and when the plants started to grow, it can now be placed on the ground with the box, wherein the box also started to disintegrate and eventually feed the plants. This project is a good substitute for nursing plants instead of using the plastic bags that will take years before it disintegrates. This project is perfect for farms and plant nurseries.

Sandwhich Bikes, Cheap and Simple

The Sandwich Bike is still in prototype but is already hot, to the extent that someone stole the prototype at the Tutto Bene Show during the Salone de Mobile in Milan. The Bike frame is made of two wooden plates, four identical smart cylinders. It can also be shipped flat which is a very convenient feature, and can be assembled at home using only a single tool. The wooden bike can be easily produced because people do not have to do the welding joints in order to produce one. In addition, the materials of the sandwich bike may vary depending on the clients demand, so that the bike can be reasonably inexpensive and simple.
