Comments Off on Study Finds Fungi is Responsible for Majority of Carbon Sequestration in Northern Forests

Northern boreal forests are easily recognized for their majestic trees and have been credited with helping to sequester much of the world’s carbon dioxide . It was originally thought that vegetative matter was what was sinking the greenhouse gas. Now, a diverse team of scientists from Sweden have discovered that these great, soaring plants are getting a lot of help from some humble decomposers living in the soil. Their findings, published in the journal Science, revealed that fungi were responsible for up to an incredible 70 percent of soil carbon in certain samples.

The ‘Waste Less’ Chair by Architecture Uncomfortable Workshop Turns Log Offcuts into a Rockin’ Chair

Comments Off on The ‘Waste Less’ Chair by Architecture Uncomfortable Workshop Turns Log Offcuts into a Rockin’ Chair

The ‘Waste Less’ chair by Architecture Uncomfortable Workshop  is a unique and modern chair that employs timber offcuts recovered after structural beams have been carved out of whole logs. The simple sections of the log are joined by elementary yet strong iron clamps, thus traversing the complexity of ‘modern’ structural designs. The unadorned form also alludes to the easily accessible, as well as the naturalized, essence of the furniture . Functionally, the sections sort of “open up” to transform the log into the physical entity of a chair. This transformation process can be achieved manually by the user on removing the clamps, and then adjusting the position of the sections. In this regard, the final chair can be of two types — a conventional chair with leg rest or a rocking chair. + Architecture Uncomfortable Workshop  Via Homecrux The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
