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!!

Posted in furniture design, green, interior design with tags , , , , , , on October 27, 2008 by anonimiss

The C30 Project designed as an entry for the ‘Volvo for Life’ design awards by Luis Luna is a beautiful development of a car-light inspired concept. Made of sequentially arranged multiple layers of cardboard, the 3-in-1 design is simple, sustainable yet contemporary and stylish…..

A Green Print for a Green Thumb

Posted in design, graphic design, green with tags , , , , , , on October 26, 2008 by anonimiss

Korean designer ji yoon Yang designed these cards with a message for the green earth competition held by designboom. The designer sas – Environment movement such as the action to combat desertification is often pictured as difficult and huge thing to do, but actually the start is derived from the small practices of people. This fact is going to be expressed symbolically through this greenish fingerprint.

The action of stamping the greenish fingerprint on the card has two meanings. First, it is the promise of real action toward the phrase on the card (eco-friendly behavior) ※ Examples of eco-friendly behaviors I[ ] will use mugs rather than paper cups. I[ ] will take public transportation if possible. I[ ] will use reusable bag when I go grocery shopping. I[ ] will stop using disposable chopsticks. *blank will be filled with person’s name. Second, the image of the tree which is completed by stamping the fingerprint represents that the promise and the execution of the phrase can save the tree (the nature). The completed pop-up card will play a role as reminding eco-friendly behavior in people’s daily lives as well as a design piece with decorative purpose. The concept won the first prize in the competetion. Need I say more??

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.

Want to Sit on Your Sunday Paper?

Posted in furniture design, green with tags , , , , , on October 14, 2008 by anonimiss

Back from my traveling, I found this simple idea of a newspaper furniture line as refreshing as my travels. Inspired to extend the ephemeral life of newspapers, David Stovell’s Sunday Paper products consist of tightly rolled newspapers strapped together into stools. The pieces, inspired by bundles of newspapers left outside of shops on a Saturday night, explore the “compressed life cycle” of the material. The designer says, “[they] have a cultural and economic value, and that the same product has a different set of values by Monday morning, in that the news is old news and their value is for pulp. I wondered that if by simply repackaging, the material life cycle could be extended.”

A Recyclable Umbrella??

Posted in green, product design with tags , , , on September 25, 2008 by anonimiss

Another quirky but interesting design – this time an environment friendly umbrella ‘Eco-Brolly’ designed by Shiu Yuk Yuen to encourage the society to take part in recycling. It has a pocket size, lightweight frame designed to utilize anything that is lying around, it can reuse and adapt objects such as newspapers, cards and plastic bags and turn them into an umbrella. Though suitable for short distance travel, it can also be used for longer distance journeys by stabilizing at the ends. It can be quite handy as its compact if one has to deal with unpredictable weather. I Like!

2d3d- A New Language in Design

Posted in furniture design, green, interior design with tags , , , , , on September 24, 2008 by anonimiss

London-based furniture design company Formtank launched a series of sustainable table designs at the recently concluded 100% Design. Using a single sheet of industrial steel in the most efficient way possible, these cutting-edge “2d3d” tables are constructed to maximize yield while minimizing waste. Capable of carrying a considerable load, the volume of each table’s base is just ¼ of the volume of the glass it supports.

I loved the tables for their sheer all-steel beauty and sophisticated ‘industrial’ look. And I think the beauty of the concept lies in the fact that it could be applied to tables in several other materials too, cardboard for instance, and still look amazing.
