Using sustainable designs is probably everyone’s desire nowadays with the growing number of people who are getting aware that we are already ruining the environment. It’s so nice that sustainable designs never run out and that green living advocates never stops searching for endless possibilities when it comes to designs that could bring good to our lives.
The non-profit organization INDEX is just of the few whose aim is to discover various designs that could do good to the environment and do the search through the organization’s hosted event called the INDEX-award for designs that helps us improve our lives and the environment. Recently the organization has presented the 2011 INDEX-Award finalist and the Autarchy by Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin of Studio Formafantasma is just one of the finalists in the Home category. Products under the Autarchy collection include containers and lamps dried naturally and are made from any materials available in the surroundings.
It is a lovely act to show we care for the environment. We can do it in various ways and through fashion is just a few of the great ways to show we care. If you think this is hard, you are wrong. Various designers and artists are now into green fashion, thus the number of eco-clothing lines to choose from are growing in numbers. Artist Dave Rittinger is just a few of those who show they care through fashion and created the Leaf Shirt. Looking at the photos, a piece of shirt is made entirely of leaves and glue. They come in various colors and all of them look lovely and fashionably cute. However, I wonder if these will not be a little itchy upon wearing.
This coming June, Solar Decathlon will take place in Madrid featuring various zero emission homes and one of the entries for the competition is the FabLab House. This uniquely designed eco-home is built off the ground, rounded, and is covered with solar panels that will be responsible of collecting solar energy to power-up the FabLab. In addition, the photovoltaic skin or solar panels also acts as the home’s rainwater collecting system, and when built, this one of a kind zero energy home will also comes with a garden allowing the users to grow plants, thus produce their own food, and eventually allowing them to save money and the environment.
