Biodegradable Designs Grown From Dried Orange Skins [4]

Spectacles and Other Decor Made From Fish Scale Plastic [11]

Royal College of Art [12]‘s new graduate Eric de Laurens [13] unveiled a series of objects using a smelly technique he developed himself while studying in his final year. Cups, reading glasses, goggles and a fishy table decoration were made using a recycled and innovative material that he calls “fish scale plastic”.

Crafty Vessels Made by Mixing Flour, Agricultural Waste and Limestone [14]

Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin from Formafantasma [15] have developed a colored collection of vessels by mixing 70% flour, 20% agricultural waste and 10% limestone. Taking a critical approach to design, while reviving old techniques and food-based materials, this is just another exciting and quirky project [16] coming from the duo.

Massive Canned Food Sculptures Make a Stir in NYC [18]

Using canned food as building blocks, teams of architects, designers and engineers — including Skidmore Owings and Merrill [19] to Eleanor Roosvelt High School [20] — patiently built twenty six tasty sculptures for an event called Canstruction [21] in downtown NYC. From Angry Birds to massive product barcodes, these jaw-dropping sculptures were created to raise the awareness of hunger issues, as well as to collect thousands of cans of food to feed needy New Yorkers.
