recycled paper = expandable seating
Ah… recycled materials and reputedly eco-friendly manufacturing. Just keep the smokers away…
Taiwanese designer Chishen Chiu’s FlexibleLove’s experimental furniture incorporates readily-available recycled paper and wood products in an “accordian-like honeycomb” design. The FlexibleLove 16 can expand from seating for one to seating for 16. The line also includes the FlexibleLove 8 and 12.
No word on release of new products….or commercial availability…
Back in the day, I had the misfortune of working for my eccentric uncles in the men’s neckwear industry. I’m still recovering from the experience. These prototypes for a solar necktie and jacket were featured in a paper done by N.C. State’s Department of Textile and Apparel. Thin film photovoltaic modules are integrated into clothing to charge small devices and cellphones. The integration of technology into fashion is going to be a growing component of the apparel industry of the future. From the looks of these prototypes we better get someone working on the ‘fashion’ component.
Once in a while an idea comes along that is so genius it makes you wonder why in the world someone didn’t think of it sooner.
The new plastic-free gDiapers are a perfect example. Unlike ordinary disposable diapers that can take up to 500—500!—years to biodegrade in a landfill, these eco-friendly underthings consist of a washable outer “g pant” and a diaper refill that you can flush down the toilet or toss into the trash without “soiling” your conscience—they break down in about 90 days in a landfill.
You can even use them as compost if you’re so inclined. Cradle to Cradle Certified. Genius, indeed.
