LSA International’s Canopy collection is among the winners of the prestigious international 2021 Green Good Design Awards. Hundreds of product designs, graphics, architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning projects, together with visionary leaders, were awarded Green Good Design Awards this month by Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies. The programme identifies the world’s most important examples of sustainable, innovative and ecological design.
Centred around the concepts of hydration and propagation, LSA’s Canopy was created in partnership with the Eden Project. Inspired by the Project’s iconic Biomes featuring contemporary domed and curved shapes, including glasses and carafes.
Each piece in the collection is mouthblown from 100% recycled glass, turning discarded material into something useful. Agglomerated cork, made from waste fragments of sustainably harvested cork bark, is also used as a component of some designs.
Other winners include OXO Good Grips Extendable Straw Set, Re-generation Guzzini Food Storage Boxes and Bottles (using recycled plastic) and Re-generation Berndes Cookware.
Another winner, Hypnose Recycled Porcelain Tableware from Kütahya Porselen Sanayi is created entirely from waste materials from coloured body porcelain tableware production.
Sustainability on the move is reflected in Tupperware General Services’sCoffee To Go Cups, ClipCroc’s Clip-Together Tableware Range and The Pebble by Otherware. The latter is a portable cutlery kit to prevent the adoption of single-use plastic utensils when dining on the move.
The Modern Art of Design Drinking Set by chilli mind consists of five engraved glass made from locally produced glass in a grass cardboard box. Its designers state that: “A seemingly mundane object is now given an aesthetic and a magical quality.” The straws’ box contains a QR-Code which leads you directly to an ever-growing collection of Planet Engagement Tips.
