Michelle Mason’s [5] Rosetta Rug took the centre stage at the exhibition with its bold cut-out felt shape. This luxury item is as sustainable as it is stylish, as the felt is made from 100% recycled plastic.

The Garfano Chair by Ricrea [11], which we first spotted in Milan in 2009, was another item that made an impact in this small exhibition. This extravagant chair re-works industrial waste such as felt, plastic and latex from the nautical and shoe industries to create a statement piece.

Eco Factory’s fun Bottle Top Lamp features a shade made from pop tops that creates a colorful illuminated effect.
