Seongyong Lee’s Plytube is, as the name suggests, a set of tubes manufactured from plywood. The lightweight but strong design is highly adaptable and customizable and can be used to construct items of furniture such as the stool on the far right.

Angela Chao’s Planters are made from ceramics that have been brightly colored to mimic carrots. The tools can be left in the flowerbed between uses without becoming rusty or appearing ugly, and at the end of their useful life they can be recycled to make new tools.
