Gallery: Our Favorite Green Designs from Tent London at the London Desi...

Inhabitat headed to east London recently to check out what green design treats the Tent London exhibition had to offer. This diverse exhibition is part of the London Design Festival and is positioned just off the buzzing Brick Lane in the Old Truman Brewery. We sifted through the impressive range of over 400 displays to bring you our favourites which included some playful energy creating solutions and lots of natural materials. In addition, the repurposing of existing or salvaged materials to create unique new designs is definitely a key trend amongst our green finds, so click read more to check them out in more detail.

Seen in the image above, the Origami Hunter heads by Si Studio are striking animal shaped paper lamps that are worlds apart from the real head mounts you may find on people’s walls. These bright origami shapes give a sense of animals at peace, whilst brightening up any room in a simple way.

The Rag and Bone Man was one of our top picks from the exhibition, as his display was just packed with wonderful examples of how you can transform the old and unused, into new playful designs. His stunning lamps are formed by joining a range of old metal and mechanical objects such as motorcycle pieces, old drills and sewing machines. Many of the mechanical parts of the original items were kept in working order when possible – meaning that items like the drill lamp have a the ability to change in height by turning the drill.

Tamasine Osher also created a clever wooden Pedal Pod to store bicycles. These Pedal Pods are the perfect place for bicycles when they are not busy riding around town. They can also be used to store all their other items like helmets and lights in their simple shelves.
