Bow is an FSC elm and ash chair by Nottingham Trent [11]-trained Jennifer McDowell [12]. The idea was born out of traditional green woodworking techniques used for Robin Hood’s bows and arrows, where the freshly cut wood bends into shape without the need of electricity to fashion them.

Also fresh from Nottingham Trent University is Benjamin Childs [13]. Childs presented a chopping board with a scale underneath to encourage users to weigh ingredients and assist them with planning healthy meals. The design even comes with a shopping list option, resulting in a more conscious and economical food shopping.

The last eco-design product we would like to show you was found in this year’s New Designers Show’s bathroom! It was a nice surprise to discover and try the fastest, most hygienic hand dryer that uses up to 80% less energy than conventional warm air hand dryers: Dyson’s Airblade [22]. Not a new design, but loved nonetheless!
