We are excited to announce the Inhabitat Editor’s Choice Awards for BKLYN Designs 2009 ! As we walked through the BKLYN Designs show this year  we were thrilled to see fresh new faces and established designers alike unveiling an inspired assortment of locally-sourced designs made from recycled materials , elegant energy-efficient lighting  solutions, and beautifully crafted furniture of every fit and form. Read on for our picks for the finest trends in future-forward furniture design!
Hugh Hayden ‘s fresh new line of FUNature  repurposes plastic balls into a bright bunch of furnishing solutions. We were particularly impressed with his tennis ball chair, which is composed entirely of recycled tennis balls that have lost their bounce.
Levent & Romme ‘s elegant lamps consist of a single sheet of paper that has been laser-cut to let light shine through in beautiful patterns.
Evan Dewhirst’s Buoy Chair is a delightful piece of seating design that allows for a great range of mobility, encourages good posture, and is assembled without the use of any glue or fittings.
Our editors were thoroughly impressed with the fit and form of Argington ‘s sustainably crafted kid’s furniture.
Ecosystems ‘s transforming table bench stole the show with its innovative space and resource-saving design. Crafted from reclaimed wood, the multi-tasking furnishing easily transforms from a comfy bench into an expandable table.
Congratulations to all of our editor’s choice winners! Stay tuned for an in-depth look at each award-winning project in addition to more great green designs from show!
