The Best Green Designs From Wanted Design 2012!
22nd May 2012
Now in its second year running, Wanted Design is an international exhibition of some of the best and brightest minds in design - and this year's show during New York Design Week didn't disappoint with its remarkable array of green furniture, beautiful lighting solutions, and cleverly conceived products. We were thrilled to see some of our favorite green designers unveil new projects - likeUM Project's robot lights and David Trubridge's aluminum coral lamps - and we were wowed by several fresh new designs like a living grass table, a series of recycled taxi cab lamps, and a gigantic chair made entirely from LEGO bricks!
Inhabitat favorite Francois Chambard of UM Project unveiled an adorable army of modular robots made from a standardized lighting unit. The quirky bots range from a miniature terrarium to retro robot lamps and even a sci-fi sound-generating theremin!
This lush living picNYC Table by Haiko Cornelissen brings a burst of green to any room. The USA-made aluminum table features a planter bed that can be used to grow grass, flowers, or even herbs – for a new take on farm-to-table eating.
Guilhem de Castelbajac scours old garages and auto repair shops for defunct taxis, and then transforms their beacons into awesome accent lights! Dubbed Off Duty No More, his collection of recycled taxi lamps are fitted with low-energy LED lights and set upon bases that mimic the hoods of cars.
