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!
Repurposed materials were also big this year – these beautiful sparkling lights are made by Findelkind  from repurposed cooking whisks.
Nienke Janssen  creates layered sculptural furniture and objects by lathing recycled scrap wood.
German Kathrin Morawietz  bonds layered textiles with wood glue and turns them into colorful Veio bowls.
Seoul-based Hyojin Shin  translates traditional Korean landscapes into intricately carved pieces of furniture.
Sattler Objektlicht ‘s glowing LED Anello lamp is a jointless lighting fixture made from recyclable aluminum that changes color and can be hung or mounted on any wall.
Interror.be’s  sculptural, flat pack LED Stealth Lamp gently illuminates any desk, saving energy and materials.
Hanemaai ´s modern indoor tent kit allows people to create a personal micro-space that is easy to set up and provides the freedom to travel.
The Swiss Institute of Industrial Design  displayed an interactive installation that created sweet sounds from their wooden, glass, and ceramic objects.
Full of wonderful new sustainable designs, DMY  2012 at Tempelhof abandoned airport is definitely worth a visit!
