    ENERGY SAVING BY DESIGN. 

    Sustainable Development Week, a French national event which runs from April 1 to 7, will focus on the theme of “Energy transition”. More simply stated: it’s the transition of a company that is based on an abundant consumption of fossil fuels to a more sober and more environmentally friendly approach. Less is more!
    Below you’ll find our favorite design objects that are smart, good-looking AND energy saving.

     

    1. Today

    Plumen, an energy-saving bulb looking at its best!

    Samuel’s Wilkinson twisted designs saves 80% more energy than an average bulb and lasts 8 time longer.

    Eco TV, by Watt and Co. is a multi-power strip that can turn off all electronic devices that are related to TV by a simple touch on your usual remote control. Knowing that 1 in 3 people never really turns off their TV and that even in sleep mode spends, you’re wasting about 10% energy, it’s no wonder why this useful yet elegant object received a best design award!

     

    Emu-Ivy-Pouf-2

    This side table created by brand EMU, restores at night the solar light it has stored in the day. A beautiful and economic way to lighten up summer nights!

    2. Tomorrow

    At the design Biennale we discoved the Nano-Ordinaire exhibition, where french designer Matali Crasset imagined a world in which every energy we create would be collected like the heat we produce at night or the micro-movements we do when working at our desk.

    And if we were more aware about our energy consumption, would we reduce it?

    The more energy you use, the more light this power cable produces, in order to show you what’s usually hidden.

    Celebrating the week of sustainability that begins april’s first, Ekobo and friends are throwing up a little surprise for you.

    And we promise we’re not fooling!

      What we saw at 2013 design biennal 

      This week we visited the Biennale internationale Design Saint-Étienne. This edition’s theme was Empathy.
      What is empathy when related to objects? Objects that are thought by designers to be the best for humans. For those who use it, for those who make it and for the planet we all live on.

      Today, more and more designers and brands as ourselves link environmental responsibility and great design.
      Here is a glimpse of what we saw:

      1. DIY

        To shop wonder world fur, contact WWF! 

        How to wear fur without arming any animal?

        You could buy a bag made from Doliphan fur: inhabitant of the forests, the shy quadruped loses its fur every time it gets scared. Which happens often.

        You could also purchase a white furry coat made from Bambooseal, a sea mammal that looses its fur when it sneezes or from Buffaloon, a black camelid.

        If all these cute imaginary animals were created by WWF France, the clothes are real and you can purchase them on a dedicated website.

        Of course they are made from responsible fabrics like South Africa mohair or peace silk, the only kind that doesn’t imply to kill the worms.

        Do you like this initiative?
