Comments Off on Rama Llama – the World’s First Genuinely Sustainable Sleeping Bag!

Deneb Outdoors has created a high performance sleeping bag made from Llama wool. Yes, Llama! Because of the Llama fibers’ hollow construction, it acts like a straw pulling any water away from the body, leaving the skin dry and warm. The hollow technology also regulates body temperature better than any other insulation on the market. It adjusts to your body temperature within a 50 degree comfort range, so no matter how cold or hot it gets, you’ll always be comfortable. he Rama Llama is hypoallergenic, wonderfully compressible and the world’s first sustainable sleeping bag.

Shipping Container Crowds a Tiny Room to Critique the Industrial Age

Comments Off on Shipping Container Crowds a Tiny Room to Critique the Industrial Age

Artist Jorge Macchi criticizes global trade and industrialism with this intriguing shipping container art installation. Previously on display at Mamba in Buenos Aires, the ‘Container’ is placed diagonally across an interior space. But the container is too big for the room, which feels claustrophobic as a result. Wedged precariously between the floor, ceiling, and walls, the installation creates a sense of unease in visitors. While perhaps better used in its original form, the repurposed structure brings up interesting questions about the state of our planet. + Jorge Macchi Image via Jorge Macchi Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: Buenos Aires , container , eco-art , global trade , green art , industrial design , jorge macchi , Recycled Materials , reuse , shipping container , sustainable art
