: : welcome to the green.house. i have always been an advocate of green design. if i could, and maybe sometimes in the future, i would love to work with environmental design. so, i wanted to share some products, blogs, companies, books...things i've collected over time that is all about sustainable living.
first out, is .mio culture. mio is a design company dedicated to creating sustainable and innovative design experiences and making it affordable for everyone. started by two brothers, one who does most of the design work and the other one handles the business side.
here is their pendant lamp and bendant lamp. i really love both of them.
the pendant lamp is made from two capsule-like felt shells [100% wool]-one in color to direct light and the other in natural to diffuse it. these lamps can be returned to the manufacturer for recycling.
the bendant lamp is a flat-packed chandelier composed of a series of leaf-like shades surrounding a central fixture. bend the shades up or down and create unique light and shadow arrangements. [mioculture.com]. the bendant lamp is such a fun, creative idea, you can make it into whatever you want, it's a bit like creating your own piece of art.
