Stitch-Up Your Chair

Posted in design, furniture design, product design, sustainable design with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2009 by anonimiss

Liked this concept for ‘stitch your own furniture’ by designer Oscar Nunez. Apart from being a low-cost option, this could also be developed into an eco-friendly product. A really potent idea…..

An Eco-Conscious Water Bottle

Posted in design, graphic design, green with tags , , , , , , on November 28, 2008 by anonimiss

The 360 Paper Bottle is a truly innovative packaging from Brandimage, which involved itself in every stage of design including concept development, branding, prototyping, engineering, and product design. The 360 Paper Bottle is the first of its kind in the world, and a true environmentally-friendly solution to the problem of plastic water bottles. The designers’ idea was to design a container that would leverage sustainability, be
easy to transport, and enhance the consumer’s drinking experience. The Bottle is the first fully recyclable paper container made from 100% renewable resources and offers a versatile range of consumer applications as it can stand up to all types of liquids. The Bottle is made from food-safe and fully recyclable materials and decreases energy consumed throughout the product life cycle without sacrificing functionality. Thumbs Up!!

Recycling A Pot of Honey – How Sweet is That??

Posted in graphic design, green, product design with tags , , , , , on October 15, 2008 by anonimiss

I love the packaging designed by The Partners for Stanley Honey that promotes the re-use of the clay plant pot to encourage more honey making in the future! It is eco-friendly without compromising on  the graphic aesthetic and is not just about selling the product, but an attempt to make it sustainable.

The ‘ISoLikeIt’ Chair

Posted in furniture design, interior design with tags , , on September 2, 2008 by anonimiss

The Isometrc Chair by Kalon Studios is beautiful because of its simplicity and elegance. Simple ergonomic form made in 100% sustainable material – bamboo, with a hint of intricate CNC carving to add that subtle glamor….I love it.

Then, the designer also has this really nice set of nesting stools that complements the chair. I think I like these even more than the chair itself!

FLOW against the flow

Posted in design, graphic design, product design with tags , , on August 8, 2008 by anonimiss

FLOWmarket is one site I really liked for many reasons.

1] it talks about sustainable design, which is a subject close to my heart

2] it conveys the designer’s idea so simply, he’s hit the bull’s eye here…..

3] the b/w design of the site itself is minimal, uncluttered, friendly and universal

4] the products for sale, which comprise the ‘scarcity goods collection’ (such as a 5kg bucket of ‘holistic thinkin’ or ‘sustainable innovation’ or a 20ml syringe of ‘collective consciousness’), bring out paradoxical emotions – they make you laugh and they make you cringe…..

…….What the heck, it’s nice, it’s meaningful, it’s thought provoking and it’s satirical, need I say more?
Oh! Don’t forget to check out the ‘flowbottle‘. And I like this poster he’s created under the ‘imagine’ header……
