The NeoCon 2005 conference is wrapping up today in Chicago. If you find yourself in the area with some free time and you’re reading this ? well, you have to move quickly, cause today’s the last day. Of particular interest to us is the “Greenlife” section featuring some great eco-furniture and materials, such as the Daylight Chair made from recycled car batteries, Vera Za? Arour?s Hemp Rugs, and Bruce Mau’s reuable, modular L7 tiles .

Metropolis Magazine is live at Neocon and has been doing a great job filling us in on everything we’ve missed.
