Joseph Palmer’s ‘Chop Flops‘ — an adorable pair of flip flops made of chopsticks — charmed our judges with their clever take on reuse and scored 2nd place in our Editor’s Choice Awards. We think Joseph deserves the accolades – after all, he did have to gather and sew together lots of chopsticks with dental floss to make these ingeniously crafty shoes.
Last but most certainly not least, Mauricio Affonso’s incredible Pop pendant lamp took the 3rd place Editor’s Choice Award with its mod styling and expert craftsmanship. Composed of hundreds of soda can tabs, this light fixture is a testament to how far from trashy recycled design can be, when it is well-executed.
A warm thank you to everyone for their incredible Spring Greening entries, and to all of our readers for voting and supporting them!
