PHOTOS: The Best Green Designs at London’s Central St. Martins’ Graduate Show
Another surprising but earthier object within the show was Seungjae Oh’s Beehive for Gardeners. Created from a mix of recycled newspaper and bees’ wax — used as a hardener and eco-binder — this non-toxic, safe and waterproof home for the little buzzers can be hung from any tall tree branch.
Because an eco-design toolkit could have a wider impact than an eco-design product, Brazilian designer Luiz Moreira created Apekatu, a toolkit to inspire the development of products that are better adaptable to specific needs and environments.
The whole kit is biodegradable and printed using water-based inks.It consists of a strategy wheel with three areas -Human, Artificial and Natural- a website and a set of cards with example that come in a box made from Sundeala, a recycled newspaper new material being produced in the UK.
