These beautiful Plinio Lamps are made with FSC wood and assembled without a drop of glue. The mission of ‘Plinio il Giovane’ (Plinio, the young) is to design sustainable pieces of furniture that last for decades.

These pieces of furniture belong to the Totem collection designed by Paolo Cogliati. They’re assembled with FSC wood, and the components fit together with wood oarlocks. They’re finished in bright colors so they’re suitable for children’s rooms.

Italian designers Stefano Giovacchini and Silvia Magrini unveiled these brightly colored Re + lamps for the Re + Company. The lamps are made of recycled polypropylene and they’re 100% recyclable and interchangeable with the same base.

Inhabitat favorite Pepe Heykoop unveiled this amazing stool, which is part of his ‘Bits of Wood’ collection. Different colored pieces of discarded wood are assembled to form the structure, and molten tin covers the joints and gives the stool a brilliant aspect.

Giulio and Valerio Vinaccia saved more than sixty beer caps from the garbage dump and transformed them into this stylish bag. The two designers have also founded a social project – they teach people living in disadvantaged areas how to create their products.

A head lamp, old pipes and a log make up this contemporary lamp designed by Andrea Bouquet for Piccola Falegnameria (Little carpentry).

Alessandra Ochetti renovated an old sofa with a fresh modern look for Opere Aperte. The sofa was set in storage and destined for the dump, but now it has a second life. Dubbed Penelope, it’s twisted with a carpet made with reclaimed wood and textile production waste.
