To celebrate EARTH DAY, I'd like to honor two fabulously talented designers who have tapped into mother nature for inspiration and beautiful design.
Meet Norwegian furniture designer, Amy Hunting. Check out her award winning bookshelf consisting of wood collected from local timber importers waste bins in London each one shelf consists of over 20 sorts of reclaimed untreated wood.
Because Amy won the Green Furniture Award, her prototype has been taken on by Green Furniture Sweden and has been put into production using wood leftovers from a wood flooring factory in Sweden. You can purchase it here.
Next from across the globe in Portland, OR, designer/illustrator Karyn Fiebich has taken her illustrations to the level in the form of stencils and public art to send the green message. She has taken objects from her environment and molded her design aesthetic to it. Look at these lovely installations she did at the University of Oregon Art School.
