Another eco-friendly building has been built in the rainy City of Concepcion, Chile. Despite of it located in the busy streets of San Martin, the Consorcio Building became one of the best green attraction in Concepcion because of its mature climbing plants that serves as protection from the sun in the East, North and West part of the building. In addition, the wonderful design of the building includes tall and large windows that allow a relaxing view towards the hills of Concepcion, but has the ability to block the sight of the haphazard roofs of the city. The building also has a great horizontal cantilever that protects the western sun of the building.
Instead of throwing away used washing machine drums, Willem Heeffer chooses to give them new life as lamps. This up-cycled product has been developed based on 3 principles: locally sourced and recycled materials, hand made, and reinvent something which totally different from its past. The designer often works with old materials and he always take them out of context to create something new. His main goal is simply to develop a beautiful product and amaze you after your discover the history behind it. In this way, these products are no longer viewed as trash and have become design pieces.
Drum Lamp is power coated in 6 different color options, it seems like hover in the air because it’s suspended by 3 x 1mm thick cables. There’s a drive wheel at the back of the machine placed inside the drum to the house the T5 circular tube which has an excellent light output. The fabric used to braid electricity cable is colored matching and lights are fitted with acrylic sheets to diffuse the light. All the drums are salvaged from local recycling centers, it’s a lamp with a clean history.

Living green while enjoying can be the best thing we can give to our children. In this way, we are making them happy while keeping them safe at the same time. In order for us to obtain this goal in life, Skip Hop has distributed the New Zealand designed Wishbone Bike – a 3 in 1 bike that is environmentally designed. Why it is eco-friendly? Simply because it has, 60 percent post-consumer recycled plastic wheels and the bike is made from sustainable managed woods and is finished with eco-friendly products. The Wishbone Bike is a 3-1 bike because it can be transformed from a stable lightweight tricycle to a pedal less running bike to a normal bike for kids up to five. This bike is recommended for kids that age 1 to five years.
