Environmentally friendly furniture brand Formabilio recently announced their latest addition: the Rigo Letto , a raised bed frame made from lacquered plywood that boasts a minimalist design and effortlessly adds a contemporary feel to any bedroom. Designed by Arianna Giovacchini, the oriental-inspired poplar plywood legs slot together for easy assembly. The bed frame is varnished with a matt, water-based lacquer in a choice of three different colors: black, light gray, or mole gray; the edges are left exposed with a clear varnish to reveal the plywood texture. The contemporary bed frame is available for single or double beds. + Formabilio The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?

But now, after nearly 40 years of captivity, seven retired lab chimpanzees are learning what it means to be alive outdoors. Gone are the cold, metal cages and sterile biomedical equipment, replaced with a playground haven and the golden warmth of sunlight. All of this was made possible thanks to the tireless efforts of volunteers, who, over the last year, worked to build the chimps … Read the full story on TreeHugger

The Unclutterer often shows us unitaskers, strange device that serve only one function and take up space in our drawers. I have a particular fondness for wattwasters, which are unitaskers that do one thing, take up space in our drawers, and waste electricity in the process.
