Arik Levy and Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance showcased their latest low-energy outdoor hanging lamp for Forestier. It draws inspiration from traditional Chinese paper lanterns.

One of our favorite finds, COLORS‘ Chiba is a Japanese take on classic Danish LEGO bricks made from recycled coffee beans, tea and wood chips—and it smells great!.

Ground coffee was pretty big at this year’s Maison&Objet mega-exhibition, this time Korean housewares brand EcoJun used the tasty beans (and also corn starch) to create stylish biodegradable take-away cups for tea and coffee.

Finnish duo Ko-Ho use local fast-growing produce to create these gorgeous stackable, very robust and recyclable chairs which are made from hemp!
