The 3D printing revolution marches on with a clever design by Design Libero which transforms used PET bottles into beautiful vases. The Italian design studio has designed 3 membrane-like sleeves with intricate details which can be cleverly screwed onto used plastic bottles, creating a sculptural "dress" over the silhouette of the bottle.
Detractors of minimalism often decry the cold, impersonal nature of the style. However, when executed intelligently, minimalist designs can be surprisingly expressive. The furniture collections of designer Niko Koronis is a case in point.
Founded by furniture designers Josefine Krabbe Munck, Kamma Rosa Schytte, Kasper Kyster and Lærke Ryom, Ukurant showcases experimental products from emerging designers which straddle the border between art and commerce.
As part of his graduation project, designer WooJai Lee created a strong yet light material akin to papier-mâché. The collection feels organic and industrial at the same time, no mean feat for a material which started life as a humble newspaper.
