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 ?

Comments Off on Climate change means more volcanic eruptions in Iceland

Comments Off on ‘Missing’ oil from BP disaster located at the bottom of the ocean

When the Deepwater Horizon oil rig burst in 2010, about 200 million gallons of crude oil flooded into the fragile ecosystem of the Gulf of Mexico. While much of that oil washed up on shore or was cleaned up, sometimes using controversial dispersants , there is still a lot of oil unaccounted for. A new study in Environmental Science and Technology reveals that a good portion of that missing oil—about 10 million gallons—is sitting on the floor of the Gulf, where it is wreaking havoc with the sea environment.

Comments Off on How one Bay Area couple plans to save the bees by planting one billion wildflowers

Bee populations have been in decline for well over a decade now as the alarming phenomenon known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) sees honey bees vanish from their hives. But Bay Area parents Chris Burley and Ei Ei Khin have come up with a simple, if ambitious solution to combat this problem: he hopes to plant one billion wildflowers. And their rainbow-colored Seedle seed-bombs make it easy for anyone to join in the effort.
