Self-sustainability and green is now the most common concept every designer has in their minds. Various green and eco-friendly products are now coming out in the market; many of our fellowmen are now enjoying the benefits of living green and saving large amount of energy consumption. Joining the green loving people are the designers of Kieran Timberlake Associate. They have designed the Cellophane House – a prefabricated home created for the masses. The cellophane house can be built in amazingly 16 days and has a life of around 10 years. Another great feature of this house apart from the sustainable facilities is that, it can grow and shrink as families grow and shrinks as well.
An iPhone charger that you will never think would be possible has made possible by industrial designer Peter Thuvander. His latest concept was the Iyo – an induction powered iPhone charger. It works like a yoyo wherein one end has the USB port wherein the iPhone’s USB cable can be inserted, while the other end will be the one is creating the energy. I really like this cool concept by Peter Huvander. You will not only benefit the product by charging your iPhone, but you will also enjoy while the Iyo is at work. Looks like a yoyo on the go, but it has two ends wherein the other end will serve as the charging port.

Creating an eco friendly place could be a big challenge to any architects and if they have done it they way it should be is a great achievement for them. Ecosistema Urbano Architects are now in the process of developing the Eco Boulevard in Vallecas, in Madrid Spain. A public place will have self-sufficient facilities to support everybody’s needs with their daily activities within the area. This project belongs to everyone, and has a goal of creating an atmosphere that invites and promotes activity in an urban public space. It is great to hear that we can now live green without sacrificing what we are currently enjoying with our present lifestyle.
Being eco friendly is now becoming the aim of almost every people living on earth. Everyone wants to live green as long given the chance. Some started it with living in an eco friendly homes. Many designers are now creating eco friendly designs like this eco-home that will be constructed from actual tree roots, and will be equipped with other eco-friendly features like the solar panels and wind harvesting fans. This could be a good idea when it comes to living green, however, I don’t feel it to be safety enough in staying under the tree especially during stormy weather, for trees are prone from lighting.

When disaster strikes, many of our folks became homeless in anyway, and those homeless victims need some comfortable shelter to live in. This situation made the designer Rafael Smith came into the idea of the Uber Emergency Shelter. Very easy to install, and has a solar panels that can accommodate a small refrigerator and illuminates the whole shelter. The materials for uber emergency shelter can be easily shipped on a compact form, and assembles easily too. The only downside it has is that, it can be a bit shaky to materialize especially in an uneven area. In addition, the price of this shelter can be a big question. Will it be affordable enough as an evacuation area?
