Contemporary glassware brand LSA International is showing its handmade and recycled Canopy collection, created together with the Eden Project, as part of the Dezeen x Planted collaboration during this year's London Design Festival.
The Canopy range comprises drinkware, planters and vases that reference the structure of the biodomes at the Eden Project, the bubble-shaped ecological park in Cornwall designed by Grimshaw Architects.
All pieces were made from 100 per cent recycled glass, which gives the collection a subtle green hue and helps turn discarded material into something useful for the environment.
"This echoes the founding principles of the Eden Project, to transform and regenerate, exploring our dependence on the natural world and using that understanding to excite people into delivering transformation where they live," LSA International said.
The Eden Project houses the largest rainforest in captivity in its biodomes. The Canopy collection references these not only in shape, but also because it aims to help propagate and nurture plant life with its bulb planters, closed gardens, terrariums and self-watering planters.
Every component of the products and their packaging is conventionally recyclable or biodegradable or both, with organic vegetable inks used to print the packaging.
