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.

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.
