Gallery: Salone Satellite 2010: Young Designers Go Green

One of the show-stoppers at this year's Salone Satellite was this tiny LED table lamp that is completely powered by real, edible tomatoes. Designed by Cygalle Shapiro of Israel-based d-VISION, the design not only explore advances in lighting technology – it's also an art piece that sends clear and powerful social-conscience messages about where and how we receive energy.

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.
