Comments Off on Formafantasma’s Natural Botanica Vessels Look Like Archaeological Artifacts

We recently showed you Formafantasma’s crafty vessels made from flour, agricultural waste and limestone, but the design studio has developed another amazing set of archaic-looking objects. Commissioned by Plart , Formafantasma created ‘Botanica’, a collection made from natural polymers with vegetal and animal origins. Using rosin, dammar, copal (a sub-fossil state of amber), natural rubber, shellac ,  bois durci , and other natural materials, Formafantasma developed a quirky, biodegradable, and very innovative line.

Republican Politicians Ignore Their Party’s Climatologists on the Issue of Climate Change

Comments Off on Republican Politicians Ignore Their Party’s Climatologists on the Issue of Climate Change

Please understand that we here at Inhabitat try to give everyone a fair shake, but with the current state of affairs concerning climate change deniers in the Republican Party, it is difficult to keep our cool. Inside Climate News seems to have had the same issue as of late and have released an article this week detailing a number of preeminent climatologists’ – who also happen to be registered Republicans – efforts to convince high-level Republican politicians that their denial is just plain uneducated. The report details these scientists’ attempts to reach out to politicians in order to educate them, and their constant experience of being brushed aside in favor of political rhetoric. So as Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum stands on his soap box and declares that this “whole global warming debate” isn’t scientifically proven, we’re wondering where he’s gathering his evidence.

Comments Off on The World’s Largest Cardboard Christmas Tree Springs up in London!

Giles Miller has wooed us with his intricate cardboard creations before and now he’s brought us the world’s largest cardboard Christmas tree! Standing at roughly 20 feet in the Design Museum London’s public atrium, the tree is comprised of no fewer than 3,600 details, individually-cut, handmade cardboard pieces. Similar to a fake evergreen, these pieces can be arranged around a central shaft to give the branches that fluid, swirling motion so essential to the nature of a real Christmas tree. Smaller versions of these incredible creations, which Giles designed exclusively for the Design Museum, are on sale to the public. More details after the jump.
