Brodie Neill's "Gyro"
via @treehugger @kimberleymok:

Ocean plastic upcycled into elegant "ocean terrazzo" table. Fragments of recycled ocean plastic are inlaid to achieve the terrazzo effect of the Gyro table, designed by Brodie Neill for Australia’s entry into the first London Design Biennale.
Though it looks like a stone-based material, this striking table is made from bits of plastic waste, harvested from the coast.

THIS HAPPENED in 2016: AN INDUSTRIAL ROBOT DANCES WITH A DOUBLE-LEG AMPUTEE @olympics @paralympics @amypurdygurl
Watch #Paralympic Snowboarder #AmyPurdy dance with a @KUKA_RoboticsUS #robot at the #OpeningCeremony of the #ParalympicGames in #Rio2016.
Prepare to be amazed it is worth the 4-minute watch <3
Editor's Note: Whether you know or not, we were the 1st to write about #3Dprinting and #Luxury (here https://goo.gl/42AcN).
So last year, we were in touch with a very creative and young #designer called @DanitPeleg who 3D printed a whole fashion collection!
WAIT...
Danit just got back from Rio, where she was honored to take part in the incredible Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony.
The extraordinary double-leg amputee Paralympian and Dancer, Amy Purdy, danced a mesmerizing #samba duet with an industrial robot, wearing Danit's new #3Dprinted #dress!

ENTREPRENEURSHIP ANYONE :) ?
"It is fashionable to romanticise entrepreneurs. Business professors celebrate the geniuses who break the rules and change the world. Politicians praise them as wealth creators. Glossy magazines drool over Richard Branson’s villa on Lake Como. But the reality can be as romantic as chewing glass: first-time founders have the job security of zero-hour contract workers, the money worries of chronic gamblers and the social life of hermits."

MUSHROOMS DISRUPTION
"In 2006, a patent was granted to a man named Paul Stamets. Though Paul is the world’s leading mycologist, his patent has received very little attention and exposure. Why is that? Stated by executives in the pesticide industry, this patent represents “the most disruptive technology we have ever witnessed.” And when the executives say disruptive, they are referring to it being disruptive to the chemical pesticides industry.
What has Paul discovered? The mycologist has figured out how to use mother nature’s own creations to keep insects from destroying crops. It’s what is being called SMART pesticides. These pesticides provide safe & nearly permanent solution for controlling over 200,000 species of insects – and all thanks to the ‘magic’ of mushrooms."

JAPANESE BEAUTY
"Balancing act: Case-Real convert Japanese storehouse into modern work space.
The converted home is situated in Gosho-Higashi, a quiet town between Kyoto Gyoen and the Kamo River.
Creative folk are often heard complaining of a work-life imbalance, and the trend for live-work spaces is on the up. Helping one productive Japanese duo to achieve this illusive, much sought-after life goal, are former Wallpaper* Design Award winners Koichi Futatsumata, who have created an effortlessly elegant multi-functional work space in a converted Japanese storehouse."

NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT:
"Coffee pod sales will soon surpass regular and instant coffee".
In the meantime we keep on using our traditional Italian coffee maker 3 times a day, usually filling it with Malongo organic and fair trade coffee...
PLASTIC/ALUMINIUM PODS ARE NOT SUSTAINABLE:
"It remains, as Lloyd wrote earlier, “design for unsustainability,” regardless of how manufacturers want to spin it."

#coffee #pods #coffeepods #nespresso #clooney #georgeclooney #sustainability #sustainablebrands #greenwashing #unsustainable
Data shows that, despite the environmental impact and high cost of disposable coffee pods, people are buying them more than ever.
