By designing pressed metal joints for building bamboo frameworks to try to reduce poverty and bad living conditions, Central St. Martins’ graduate Sang Min Yu created Relieving Poverty through Design. A project designed for giving South East Asia’s rural communities a chance to work with local materials and produce furniture themselves. This project allows them to be self-sufficient, engaged and be responsible for their local living areas.

We have seen many examples of green walls blooming around cities, but this project by Mafalda M. Moutinho called “Natural Design” focuses on green living environments at home. It consists of a green wall that will improve interior air quality, providing more oxygen and eventually, fresh fruits and vegetables in living rooms!

Growing Graphics by fresh designer James Henderson questions the well-established ways that temporary information is communicated in the outdoors and the way it is produced. This project could be used for outdoors displays at festivals, signage or street art, and it could be made from all sorts of ephemeral and exciting reactive materials that will work with rain, heat, or in the case above, be grown from yummy sprouts and eaten later!
