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.

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.

EcoSystems creates sustainable furniture using recycleable materials: Bamboo plywood, 100% aluminum hardware and fasteners, talalay latex, and Designtex biodegradable fabric. Also, it gets bonus points for snapping together without tools, and ships in flat in one solid piece of plywood.

Fabrik’s SimpleTech Turbo
is designed with rippled sides to dissipate heat, negating the need for
a fan, and it’s made from recycled aluminum and, of course, bamboo.
Bamboo and aluminum, good combination.
