These are only advertisements, not the real thing. But based on how cool they look, I think they should actually make em. The egg carton is my favorite.
Zuriick makes some fly f’in shoes. Plus they get bonus points for having purple soles. And they’re quite affordable too — each pair around $65. They don’t make the ones I bought anymore so I’ll take a picture when I get a chance. Simon out.
This chair is created by heating and pressing a seat-shaped former into a ball of polypropylene rope. The rope begins to liquify as it comes into contact with the heated former and, as it cools, it sets in the shape of a seat creating a contrast in form and texture to the remaining rope. No additional material has been added to make the seat – it is all made from melted rope.
If it unravels I guess you can melt it again.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, the packaging is the lamp, leaving zero waste.
Shweet. One bead drops every five minutes. By the way if you have never held a bead necklace in your hand and constantly slide a bead down hearing it hit the other ones, you’re missing out. It’s extremely relaxing. It’s like twiddling thumbs, except not stupid.

Through I feel you’re co-workers might eventually be tipped off seeing that you’re eating a moldy sandwich every day, thumbs up.

Neil Poulton goes beyond minimal and designs some weird sci-fi shit for Lacie’s new 4big Quadra.

The Schwinn Earth is a frame made from 90% flax fibre, harvested from Northern France and 10% glass fibre. I really love the concept, but I have a problem with mixing in composites in sustainable design. I know the 10% glass fibre is neccessary for strength, rigidity and waterproofing, but adding that 10% glass results in the frame becoming harder to biodegrade, which is exactly opposite of what the bike is trying to achieve.

As a fan of music I love this. And because I am a fan of recycled design, I am absolutely in love with this. Basically, the artist uses a vinyl cutter to cut grooves into CDs to that can play on record players. To me, it seems a little too good to be true without some kind of modification. I really really really would like to know just how good it sounds and if the rigid plastic of the cd would just tear up your needle. I need to get my hands on one. Thumbs up.

Straight from the designer’s mouth:
“In the future space becomes more desirable, because the big apartmentbuildings are taking over the normal 1, 2 or 3 level houses. It’s more efficient because you will need less square meters to house people. therefore the focus for the future is on height and not in width. But current storage furniture is designed for average humans with a length of approx. 1.8 meters so everything is reachable. So to be efficient also our furniture needs to grow in height in stead of width. This StairCASE is the result of these facts.”
