Blow Sofa by Malafor, I Saloni, Salone del Mobile, Milano, Milan Salone 2010, Salone 2010, Milan Design Week, Milan Design Fair, sustainable design, green design, green products

Malafor’s Blow Sofa is made from 100% recycled paper dunnage bags that are filled with air and combined with a metal rack and rubber straps. Very portable!

My Granddaughter's Cabinet by Lisa Hilland, I Saloni, Salone del Mobile, Milano, Milan Salone 2010, Salone 2010, Milan Design Week, Milan Design Fair, sustainable design, green design, green products

All the materials used in Lisa Hilland‘s “My Granddaughter’s Cabinet” are natural, environmentally friendly, and carefully chosen for their ability to age beautifully. All of Lisa’s designs were elegant.

Net Chair by Jun Hashimoto, I Saloni, Salone del Mobile, Milano, Milan Salone 2010, Salone 2010, Milan Design Week, Milan Design Fair, sustainable design, green design, green products

When designing the Books Net Chair, Jun Hashimoto sought to create a design that required minimal processing and materials. One might assume that the chair is flimsy or uncomfortable, but both assumptions would be far from the truth. Because of the design and material used, it even had a slight bounce when I took a seat.
