The Rolling Stone, No! This is not the famous band that you know but an eco-friendly housing structure by a Slovakia-based Nice Architects. This wonderful traveling housing module is built from environmentally friendly materials, and is self-sufficient when it comes to energy, water and waste. The Rolling Stone is completely movable when towed and can be expanded when stationary so that one can form an open studio or a mobile stage if desired. This beautiful housing capsule has a reflective surface made from recycled aluminum can tiles and the rest are made from locally sourced wood and OSB panels. The Rolling Stone can accommodate 2 to 6 person and is complete with a bedroom, bathroom, shower and sink, and a living room with a kitchenette.
CIV or the Concept Ice Vehicle is a product concept of the creative minds of Kieron Bradley that gained experience in designing formula 1 racecar chassis before plunging in and lead on the CIV built as a manned scout rover for a trans-Antartic expedition. The CIV engine, which is the supercharged BMW 1150 that has been adapted to run on biofuel, made it eco friendly. Its propulsion system is via propeller and the 800lb vehicle has a speed of 84mph, which is obviously to notch. In addition, the CIV is a cross between Ultra light and snowmobile and the machine is equipped with an Ice Penetrating Radar or the IPR.
Upcycling things offers many good effects like saving money and the environment and so Willem Heefer’s eco-friendly creation called Heinz Beanz Chandelier is definitely ideal for people who want to save money and at the same time help save the environment. In this project, 334 cans of Heinz Beanz are upcycled by the designer for the new American diner in Helsinki of top chef Hans Valimaki.
The number of cans upcycled made the action considered as an industrial scale upcycling. Tin cans are collected from different restaurants, cleaned and transformed into different useful items including forks and knife holders, bar lights, floor to ceiling storage display and three chandeliers.
Each of the chandeliers is a home of 21 classic Heinz Beanz tin cans. The lamps are in Martina Rosenqvist and Vera Oller and all fits perfectly to the said places with its corrugated roof panels cladding the bar. This is a great project to help minimize the growth of landfill and delay global warming. Presumably, the project is applicable to any tin cans. Willem submits the project to iGreensPot team and we find it valuable for our readers as it matches perfectly to our aim of sharing projects and ideas to help save the environment.
IGreenSpot received this Heinz Beanz Chandelier submission from the page ‘Submit Your Green Product Creation‘ feature, if you want exposure or showcase your green project, we welcome you to submit your green product for publication.
