Design for a Living World

We love to see the world embracing and exploring sustainable design, as they are at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum with their latest exhibition. “Ten leading designers have been commissioned to develop new uses for sustainably grown and harvested materials in order to tell a unique story about the life-cycle of materials and the power of conservation and design.” Rapsel too tells that story. Matteo Thun for Rapsel’s “Invisible Bath” is a testament to how progressive, innovative design can be matched by sustainability. Using fallen larch trees and other sustainable materials as a source, Thun and Rapsel are looking forward with “green” eyes.
