  • well designed, stylish.

  • Another mid-century modern classic, the Aeron chair never goes out of style. As they are typically seen in black, i think this taupey color is a unique take. I would use one as an occasional chair in the living room.

Use natural heating and cooling 4. Be beautiful as well as ecological. 5. Located close to there the dwellers have to go (work, school, shopping). 6. Refurbish older buildings where possible. The thirty or so houses described in this book fit these criteria as best as possible. Some of these are in remote locations so fail in that criteria (unless you work at home and do not have children in school). But a surprising number of these dwellings are in cities: New York, Vienna, Stuttgart, Melbourne, San Antonio, Phoenix. The houses are striking in appearance, inexpensive to build, totally functional. As with other books of home plans, these houses serve as idea books for architects and potential owners to use in their new designs. "

Sustainable Pet Design synthesizes art, eco-friendliness, and responsible pet ownership into one beautiful, functional package. Greenrrroof Animal Homes have living roofs containing organic soil and native plants. Homes are built using untreated red cedar wood (repels fleas and ticks), zero VOC paints and glue, and beeswax waterproofing. The green roof creates sound and temperature insulation, creates habitat for birds and insects, and filters particulate matter from air and stormwater. Designs are standard or custom, sizing is custom for the pet.

    This sounds like a great idea. I wonder if it's really as efficient as they would have you believe.

I like to know what we are selling, and refine it.” For Grohe, good design stands the test of time—both functionally and aesthetically. It’s a green point of view: using one faucet for decades is more environmentally correct than switching it out every few years. Grohe describes some exacting company standards: “In an average home, we use the shower approximately five to 10 times per day. We need a product that can withstand this for 20 years. Our materials are durable as well as recyclable. We put care into choosing our materials, and meet or exceed requirements for environmental certification. Our objectives are to reduce waste and to minimize any adverse impact on the environnment.” While changing a faucet every couple of weeks may sound wasteful, Grohe’s at-home R&D is just one personal exercise that ensures longevity. Other facts that will make Hansgrohe clients feel good about themselves: The company has the largest roof-integrated photovoltaic power plant in Germany, and it trains employees in environmental management and ecological issues. Water conservation technologies define Hansgrohe systems. The American prototype AquaCycle is a cabinet-size device whose ultraviolet lights and fine filters cleanse graywater; it can capture and recycle between 238–3,300 gallons of bath water for doing laundry, flushing the toilet or watering the garden. A shower temperature-control cartridge achieves a perfect temperature so users don’t waste water in finding the right fit. Also in the shower realm, an Ecostop button limits maximum water flow. And mixers blend air and water to give the feeling of outstanding flow, without using as much of the wet stuff. Any more water problems for Hansgrohe to solve? How about a hand shower with interior antibacterial coating (currently being designed) that will prevent the release of nickel particles. Allergy sufferers will flock to it, proving that Hansgrohe’s outlook sustains not only the planet Earth, but the individual.

Is your newest designer sofa made of corn? Interface, Inc., the maker of the ecocarpet Flor, has recently introduced an eco-friendly commercial fabric called Terratex, and many large textile and furniture manufacturers, including Knoll and Herman Miller, are using it. In fact, Knoll worked with Terratex to produce the fabric for the Essential Work Chair by Jeffrey Bernett, which made its debut at NeoCon 2005. Terratex, originally made from recycled soda bottles and polyester plastic resin, has now introduced bio-based fibers into the mix. Bio-base is made from thermoplastic fibers (PLA), which, in turn, are made from corn, potatoes, soybeans and other starch-based agricultural waste products. Although, consumers can’t buy Terratex fabrics directly, they can purchase an assortment of products—everything from furniture and fabrics to wall panels and carpets—that contain it. In addition to Knoll and Herman Miller, Terratex works with HON, DesignTex, Jhane Barnes, Luna Textiles, Momentum, Carnegie and Allsteel. (Terratex isn’t always indicated on the label, so query a sales associate or consult the Terratex website [www.terratex.com]). Interface uses alternative-energy systems in its factories and is trying to find new methods to save water, reduce emissions and waste, and eliminate harmful substances from products. One new company initiative is a program called ReSKU, whereby manufacturers who use Terratex in furniture and textiles send back their old products to be recycled. It is good to know companies are teaming up to make products that are good for both the environment and our health.
