Foldschool: DIY Origami-Style Cardboard Furniture for Kids

Comments Off on Foldschool: DIY Origami-Style Cardboard Furniture for Kids

We can’t think of a better combination than DIY-crafts, cardboard, and kids—and Swiss architect Nicola Enrico Stäubli’s FoldSchool furniture does just that. What’s even better is that these chairs-for-kids (or for the kid in you) aren’t products for purchase, but rather FREE   downloadable patterns from his website . All you need is a printer, some cardboard, and a pair of scissors, and you’re on your way to sitting pretty with your tots on some truly green, interactive, and surprisingly sturdy seating. Your three options are stool, rocker, and chair, each of which are simple to create and would make a great eco-design crafts project for you and your little one on a rainy day.

Comments Off on Vinylize Launches Groovy Lamps Made From Repurposed Vinyl Records

Budapest-based design studio Vinylize just launched a new lamp with a shade made from a repurposed vinyl record! The lamp is made from aluminum, and its cable, switch and plug hark back to the old days of quality through the use of bakelite and woven fibers. The lamp can be clamped to almost any surface, and it’s designed to be used with modern LED bulbs. The Vinylize lamp will be available to the public once it passes CE testing. + Vinylize The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?

Image via Shutterstock It seems like every other day, a new report gets shunted about online that lists all the horrible, harmful effects that ingredients in daily personal care products can wreak on our health. Parabens and phthalates are showing up in breast milk and body tissues; synthetic preservatives are polluting waterways… Just about everywhere we turn, the bad news bears peer around corners, admonishing us for the toxins we slather ourselves in. There is a way to absolutely ensure that the products we use are gentle on both our bodies and our environment, and that is to make our own.

Comments Off on Researchers Develop the World’s Most Efficient Flexible OLED

OLEDs (organic light emitting diodes) have revolutionized screens and displays of all sorts – including televisions and telephones. Up until recently, the most efficient way to produce, bright, long-lasting OLEDs was to use glass – but researchers have been hard at work putting that technology on flexible, lightweight plastics. Researchers at the University of Toronto just announced that they have developed a new way to produce flexible, plastic-based OLEDs that are inexpensive and as efficient as OLEDs made with glass. Watch an interview with the researcher after the jump.
