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

 
The simple display by Greece Is For Lovers had a subtle, but clever message about sustainability. Each item on display is a rework of a disposable product in Greece that has been transformed into something that should last longer. For example, the renowned shape of the disposable plastic water carrier has been replicated in terracotta.

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.
