Gallery: Salone Satellite 2010: Young Designers Go Green

A lot of people use a humidifier all winter long, but I hate to have that ugly piece of plastic plugged in all the time. So I loved Innovo's humidifier at first sight. You fill the interior reservoir with water, which is absorbed into the wood, which is released into the air. It's poetic, and very pleasant to look at... and to smell! It will fill a room with the scent of cedar.

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.

This umbrella stand by Innovo is sowed with seeds that grow when your umbrella sheds raindrops!

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.
