Good & Gorgeous? [re]design at the London Design Festival
Just one more day until [re]design launches their show Good & Gorgeous? at this year’s London Design Festival. The show promises truly gorgeous design, meaning design that’s good for you, for others and the environment. You’re in for a treat of everything green from things based on recycling, reusing or reducing to disassembly, fair trade or play. 80 companies exhibit eco-friendly products, green design tools, innovative materials and give stimulating seminars that inspire.
The designs they say will be:
•friendly and funny
•sustainable and surprising
•open and optimistic
•inclusive and inspiring
•good and gorgeous...
Amongst the exhibiting designers you’ll find familiar ones such as SECCO, the treasures from wasteland, Green-Works who revamp old office furniture, Smile Plastics who create recycled materials or Julienne Dolphin Wilding, the environmental artist. But many more gorgeous pieces can be found at the [re]design 2006 show, for example the Woodpecker Wine Rack by Brilliantly Simple, the funky Inkuku chairs by Ryan Frank, inspired by an African craft technique, awareness raising Made In by Pieces of You, Sprout design’s fantastic Binvention that finally sorts out your recycling and many more. So make your way to the Boiler House, Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane in London. 21-26 September it’s open to the public. -Which one is your favourite?
