I designed this stand for Edinburgh College of Art with sustainability and usability as the core concepts.
Recycled & Recyclable Core
The core components (paper tubes and plastic sheets) are already recycled materials, linked together with paper clips and screws, making it easy to assemble, dismantle and reuse in another configuration. This also leaves the materials clean, free from glue or paint that would end their recycling cycle. The coat hangers are also made out of cardboards, except for the metal hooks and clips obviously.
Taking the concept further, additional storage boxes and decoration of the stand have been made from Graduate Fashion Week 2018 waste, collected on site from skips.
The different heights of the tables make the stand accessible, as well as the shaping the space. This is enhanced by the lightning which brings up the portfolios and creates a unique, warm, boutique atmosphere. The petals have different heights to showcase different length of garments, and also giving every students equal opportunity to showcase their work.
The design was though through to limit the amount of waste & lost raw material to a minimum; every millimetre counts!
The left over of the tubes used to create the hangers have been used to make the ‘heads’ of the mannequins and the lamps are designed using the centre of the petals.
Almost every elements of the stand will be repurposed for next years’ event or donated to local charities at the end of GFW18, and when the time comes, they can be recycled again at a local waste management centre!

I made the clock, she made the lamp. Very close concept from my Circadian clock but with light. It is very elegant and I wish I came up with this idea (even if I still like very much my clock).
I started thinking about our survival needs, from what came the important question: why are we not more careful on what we do on the planet, when it is what offer us the possibility to live?
Our survival needs are:
– appropriate atmospheric pressure
We can survive:
– 3 min without air
– 3 hours without a regulated body temperature
– 3 days without water
– 3 weeks without food
The one I am the most interested in is the water. Maybe because it is my favourite element to be in and my favourite drink 🙂
Our body is composed between 60% and 80% of water. It (water) provides the environment necessary for life.
A sandglass is meant to give the time like it is indefinite, but what if it was leaking ?
I am thinking to make one with water. The amount of water inside would be equivalent on the volume available on earth/per person, and would leak in accordance of the diminishing of the resource.
Designed by Brynjar Sigurðarson for PCM Design, these glacier-shaped candles will not take a long time to melt upon contact with heat. They have been developed in order to remind people that global warming is our problem and it’s still time to act. From Fubiz
Comical irony of this ad: it claims to offer us a savior that will end our perceived slavery to technology – in the form of more technology. As jarring as this logic is, it makes complete sense when taken as a prime example of capitalism taking something that could possibly subvert it and twisting it to its advantage. “it can’t attempt to overthrow the tyranny of cellphones, because it is selling a phone” is spot-on – the obvious way to stop your phone from running your life is to get rid of it or at least stop carrying it all the time. This is problematic for capitalism because you can’t sell something that people can already do for free. The decision to address the problem (at least in the mind of the audience) without losing the ability to profit from its root cause is at once terrifyingly effective and par for the course.
On a slightly different (but hopefully related) tangent, the first part of this commercial can be easily construed as a panopticon. The people on their phones may be “connected” online, but the point the ad makes is how isolated they are in real life. The metaphorical observation tower here is occupied by the few people saying “Really? ” and the viewer watching the ad. The Windows Phone purports to break down the divisive cell walls of this panopticon, but all it’s really selling is the ability to pretend they don’t exist. by Alex Beachum

The Useless Box, sometimes known as the Leave Me Alone Box, is a machine the sole function of which is to shut itself down by extending an arm that flicks the power button off.
Why our phone, TV could not ask us to leave them alone, and push us to disconnect.
