Gallery: Salone Satellite 2010: Young Designers Go Green

 
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.

One thing we love about Salone Satellite is that the budgets for booth design are considerably lower than what you can see in the main hall, so creativity is often amped up and a bit more raw. Instead of meeting people in marketing and sales, in SaloneSatellite you can often meet the designers themselves. We left the exhibition feeling really inspired and positive.

D-Vision showcased a brilliant little LED lamp made from soap at their Salone Satellite ON/OFF exhibition. It comments on how-low energy lighting opens the door for new lampshade materials — the heat from the bulbs will not cause soap to melt.
