Green design in Athens

I have said it again: don't forget to re-use. But I've never said you should do it without style. And if you think this is difficult Green Design Festival is here to give you inspiration. On an open contemporary playground on Syntagma Square, in the heart of Athens, industrial designers, fashion designers, architects present proposals and ideas on how to turn every day life greener without saying bye bye to design. During this festival a lot of other interesting things will take place in other spots of Athens.

Εριφύλλη Νικολοπούλου / Erifylli Nikolopoulou - Athens

Deux Hommes - Athens
Evening jacket made of tea bags /Βραδινή jacket φτιαγμένo από σακουλάκια τσαγιού

Δάφνη Βαλέντε / Daphne Valente - Athens
Dress made of luffa / Φόρεμα από λούφα

Victim Fashion St - Mei Hui Liu - London
Dress made of vintage lace and embellisments /Φόρεμα από παλιές δαντέλες και στολίδια

If you want to fix the ambience of your living-room but can't afford to spend on hip designer's lighting fixtures here are two ideas. In the first picture you see plastic bottles with water.

Αν θέλετε να φτιάξετε την ατμόσφαιρα στο σαλόνι σας αλλά δεν μπορείτε να ξοδέψετε για ψαγμένα designer φωτιστικά, ορίστε δύο ιδέες. Στην πρώτη φωτογραφία βλέπετε μπουκάλια με πλαστικό νερό.

These two last ideas are for me. One month ago I started collecting plastic lids without having any idea what I would do with them. I think my problem is solved now.

Οι δύο τελευταίες ιδέες είναι για μένα. Ένα μήνα πριν ξεκίνησα να μαζεύω πλαστικά καπάκια χωρίς να έχω ιδέα τί πρόκειται να τα κάνω. Νομίζω ότι το πρόβλημά μου λύθηκε.
