From Design to DIY



Images from top left to right:

  • How great are these: 3D modular wallpaper tiles made from pre-consumer waste paper and paper collected from homes and offices via recycling programs? What’s more, the PaperForms tiles can be recycled themselves when you’ve had enough of them. They are made by Karton.
  • There’s something about this chair that makes me want to curl up in it with a good book! And it’s all about upcycling as the colourful fabric is recycled silk from Nepal. The wood is American white oak and the legs can be dismantled for easy transportation. Created by Istanbul-based designer Meb Rure.
  • How about this? A laser-projected keyboard and a mouse that tracks your fingers’ movements. The Epic device projects a fixed keyboard pattern onto any flat and opaque surface. Who’d have thought?
  • Am loving these pineapple vases. Shame they don’t last. Find out how to make one at A Pair and a Spare.
  • Why is this woman looking so happy crunching a light? Because she’s the designer of the Proplamp, made from a degradable, non-woven material called Tyvek and inspired by a screwed up piece of paper. See more of Dutch artist Margie Teeuwen’s Proplamps here. [First seen at The Generalist]
