Comments Off on BUG BUG cutlery set might just make you want to eat insects

Including protein-packed insects in our diets will help us deal with a future food-nightmare scenario , as insects are widely available and take only 8-10% of the resources needed for the production of meat. BUG BUG was designed as a response to a large-scale food crisis predicted for 2050 . The set comprises all sorts of unique utensils, including a pair of claw-like cutlery that fits over the fingertips to mimic birds’ beaks. There are also chopstick with a pin-end for skewering, a multi-use spork for the little bits, and a textured spoon for crushing the hard parts. Related: The world is perilously close to global food shock Crafted from a combination of ceramic, stainless steel and cherry blossom wood, the utensils are elegant and durable. The plates are made from porcelain but resemble stone, to fit in a picnic environment. An easy-to-carry piñatex roll case with bark cloth lining completes the set designed for a future al-fresco dinning scenario. We spotted Wataru Kobayashi’s innovative BUG BUG at London Design Festival’s Designersblock . + Wataru Kobayashi + London Design Festival Photos by Wataru Kobayashi and Mike Chino for Inhabitat

Comments Off on Plumen Unveils Gorgeous Glowing Oak Installation at the London Design Festival

As part of London Design Festival’s Designersblock , British brand Plumen debuted the Glowing Oak, a gorgeous and unearthly lighting installation that toes the line between fantasy and reality. Located on the top floor of London’s iconic and decayed Old Sessions House, the Glowing Oak comprises a real 16-foot-tall oak tree laced with Plumen’s hanging light bulbs. The striking installation creates a curious contrast between the courthouse’s old classic architecture, the modern and high-tech low energy bulbs, and the enchanting presence of a living tree.
