Industrial designer Jake Tyler surprised everybody with the world’s first recycled cardboard vacuum. The eco-friendly appliance is its own packaging, and its parts can be replaced at little cost. You can also draw on it!
Tamara Cote Lovelo steered clear of designing just another chair. Cote focused her work on the growing numbers of food-related disorders and obesity in Scotland. Here she creates a sweet and healthy treat made from local seaweed.
As a number of us here are vegetarian or vegan, we were immediately drawn to Naomi Bines’ project that stores fruits and vegetables outside the fridge. She came up with a solution for keeping them fresh for longer using three ‘containers’, where fruits are kept separated and ventilated, root vegetables cool and dry and green leaves cool and humid. Amazingly simple!
Want to see some more exciting ideas coming out from this year’s New Designers? We have lots more to share in a second post, so stay tuned!
