3D printed, stylish candleholder

ECH candleholders are designed to be printed on home 3D printers and are made of the best grade PLA (biodegradable thermoplastic derived from renewable resources). What’s more, precise craftsmanship and locality play an important role for Warsaw-based designer duo – Justyna Faldzinska and Milosz Dobrowski. You can build ECH in endless combinations of geometric forms. Elements come in various colours – all soft, but saturated hues. The intense colours highlight the crafty geometric texture. The modern look – colourful component alluding to exotic and abstract geometric shapes – make it a beautiful addition to a romantic dinner or to warm up your bedroom.

The product was the winner of the A’Design Award 2016 in the categories of “Sustainable Products” as well as “Project and Green Design”.

The lampshades by CreaRE have a porous rich texture and provide a soft, warm light. They come in a rich variety of hues, some of them reminiscent of stones or planets.

“Ignorance is bliss” A porcelain made of metallic industrial waste

ignorance is bliss means the less you know, the better. It’s also a name for a growing collection of ceramics by the Lithuanian material designer – Agne Kucerenkaite. She explores  how industrial metal waste can be turned into powdered dye, which can be used to colour porcelain tableware and ceramic tiles. Agne explains, “People who are not familiar with the ceramic-making process don’t know that almost all glazes are made of toxic materials”. Her colourful ceramics are made of metallic industrial waste transformed into new products aimed at promoting a circular economy.
