The Chilote Shoe is a design-craft product hand-made by women in and near the Chilean Patagonia using only repurposed and up-cycled salmon leather and raw natural wool. This simple, noble, extremely comfortable and highly sustainable indoor shoe redefines the concept of inclusive and conscious consumption. It is the result of the synergy created by design guided craftsmanship, noble renewable materials from the Patagonia, and a disruptive socially inclusive production ecosystem. Each unit features a unique QR that links to specific details of the individuals involved in it's production.
Triton is an alternative warning and guidance system used on the sea. The design is self contained and does not need a substructure. It uses sustainable energies. Triton, meaning The Little Sea God, symbolizes self reliance, durability and the perfect harmony with its environment. The name of the product is chosen especially since the name has the potential to emphasize the visual triplets of the form.
Festival Village was designed as the social hub of Festival of the World, a summer arts festival organised by London's Southbank Centre in 2012. The space was designed and built collaboratively. Over 200+ staff and local volunteers worked together using 5+ tons of reclaimed materials to deliver the project. The space performed multiple functions from rehearsal space to dining space and from meeting space to touchdown workspace. Southbank Centre described Festival Village as "a demonstration of the power of what can be achieved when people work together to create something new".
This project is focused upon the design of the new concept of a punching tool that is able to make a hole large enough for a coin. This ability gives this project its unique edge and innovative design. With this punching tool, we are able to produce our own coin boxes by ourselves using empty bottles. These can then be used as donation boxes, with the money we save being donated to the third world. It is not only a tool for giving money, but also for sharing our love with one another. After donation, donors can receive feedback via UNICEF, such as photos and letters, from the people.
A multiple patented litter bin with unique capabilities, the Smartbin™ complements existing street infrastructure mounting as a twin, back-to-back around any size or shape of lamp post or sign post, or in solo format onto walls, railings and plinths. This releases new, unexpected value from existing streets assets to create networks of convenient, predictably located cigarette and gum litter bins which are always within reach, without adding clutter to the street scene. The Smartbin is transforming street care in cities worldwide by enabling an effective response to cigarette and gum litter.
Decrease of water resources is a world wide problem these days. It’s crazy that we still use drinking water to flush the toilet! Gris is an incredibly cost effective water-saving-system which can collect all the water you use during a shower. You can reuse this collected greywater for flushing the toilet, cleaning the house and for certain washing activities. This way you can save at least 72 liter water/person/day in an average household which means at least 3.5 billion liter saved water per day in such an 50 million habitant country like Colombia.
