Since 2003, Brooklyn based Nightwood has been creating furniture and decor by repurposing materials and textiles. This credenza has certainly caught my eye. Thumbs up!

Just from the few items Adam has presented at his website, it’s easy to see that he’s got many attributes of a great designer; Eco-conscious —utilizing sustainable forested woods, ingenuity—applying CNC techniques of his own design and style—that speaks for itself.
Victorian Grandfather Chair. My favorite!
57ft Cofee Table / Bench. Not my top pick by looks, but it is certainly the most impressive by design. Regarding the “custom CNC techniques” above, this is CNC cut via complex 3D curves from one continuous length of plywood 57ft long.
Chippendale Writing Desk.

I’m sure you could make this for less than $15 (plus you get a two liters of your favorite beverage!), but if you’re lazy and are lacking some hand skills you can’t go wrong with this.

I just like the way this looks. Sustainable as well — utilizing bamboo plywood, paper-based fiber composite board, and post-industrial recycled denim fill. Available at Supermarket

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.

This ol contraption will turn old newspapers into bricks for firestarting. I would use it to make a mass of floating bricks and set them loose in a pond. If anyone has any experience with this thing, send me an email and let me know if the bricks it creates is hollow or solid.
