Eve Blossom Of Lulan Announces Design Competion (video)
Lulan is another favorite of TreeHugger; Eve Blossom employs over six hundred weavers in a business model that "has evolved to embrace "sustainability" in a dynamic and profound sense of the word."
And now everyone can get involved; Lulan is running a design competition to look for "bold, sophisticated and fresh deisgns that shine when expressed through traditional weaving techniques."
It will all be open source, sponsored by Creative Commons, and anyone can submit and download the designs. Eve explains in our video:
Really lousy sound, sorry.
Competition brief will be available on June 1 at Lulan.More on Lulan:Lulan Artisans Redefines SustainabilityCameron Sinclair visits Lulan at ICFF More from The Metropolis Conference at ICFF More at ICFF:Mabeo Now Building With Local, Certified WoodsGreen Swedish Design: Living Walls, Wind Turbines and MoreRack from Hero Design Lab Looks Good, Folds FlatRat Infestation at the Non-Fiction Design CollectivePowerkiss: Furniture that Charges Without WiresFun with Finns: Shipping Containers Full of Playful Finnish Design (video)There is No Such Thing As Caulk (Or at Least That is What I was Taught)Fun At the DesignBoom Mart: Printing and FoldingStamen Lamps Made From Hundreds of ToothpicksMore from The Metropolis Conference at ICFFCarry-Na: Good Design Comes to the Seniors SetWatching the IF Mode Bike Fold and Unfold (Video)Young British Designers Take Over ICFF (Video)John Reeves' Cast Aluminum Furniture (Video)The Silliest Thing in ICFF: The Bunny Bag (Video)Design Entrepreneurs Innovate at ICFFCraft Meets Computers At Iannone Design (Video)Downloadable Wonders From Virginia TechAndrew Moe Gets Recession-Ready
