Image: Hydrogen spectrum, cosmiccandace Last time we checked in on Thomas Mallouk’s work applying biomimicry to generate hydrogen , he was reporting about 0.3 percent efficiency. According to his projections, the proof-of-concept device for producing hydrogen using the same trick applied in plants for photosynthesis could eventually reach efficiencies of 10-15%, beating nature’s average of 1 to 3 percent.

Comments Off on The Tree on Stage: Wood Furniture That Connects to Nature

Photo: Alex Davies At TreeHugger, we’ve got a bit of a thing for good wood furniture: tables, chairs, shelves and other pieces that are beautiful and built to last. A few weeks back, I wrote about Olivier Dollé, whose furniture evokes the trees that are the source of the wood he uses. Now I give you the work of Edy Boucher , another French lover of wood, whose work emphasizes even more the connection of nature and design….
