Berlin's DMY design fair recently celebrated its 10th Anniversary with a fantastic display of innovative designs from all over the world at a great historic location - the impressive Tempelhof Airport. Occupying four massive hangars, the international design fair features a remarkable array of unique designs (including offerings from Taiwan, The Netherlands and Germany), workshops and symposiums from design pioneers and trend forecasters. Click through our images below for a look at our favorite green designs from this year's show - including Berlin-based Studio Aisslinger's living, growing tree chair!

This year’s DMY featured many flat-pack, no-glue no-screws designs, but the most intriguing was Gustav Duesing 23D chair made from interlocking pieces of birch plywood.

Jolan Van Der Wiels unveiled a set of spiky candle holders made using the same crazy magnetic shaping technique used to form his gravity defying stools.

Repurposed materials were also big this year – these beautiful sparkling lights are made by Findelkind from repurposed cooking whisks.
