    What a nice list! I never expected Marcus to be one active eco-design expert!:)

    Of the lot, I like the Cabbage chair the most. The beauty of Nendo’s work lies in its simplicity – a typical Japanese trait. I have to mention that Behar’s laptop looks too fragile, maybe because of its toy-like front.

    I agree – There is something very poetic about this chair ..
    you ‘d expect some Venus coming out of it .

    well done Mr Fairs ..

    there’s still no major idea of what a green design means:
    a vase or a carpet which comments on the crisis doesn’t seem to be solving anything. but if that’s what the term means, be it.

    anyways nice collection!

    for small scale of productions who cares if is eco bla bla bla or not? this is not the point …
    we need eco products in big industries in massive production …
    Cabbage Chair? I prefer the sushi chair by Campana brothers …

    green needs great change in design process not only surface design to promote more design studio than really green projects
