We had seen these incredible illustrations in Premier-regart before, one of our big blogs, and today we want to share with you these psychedelic images of the artist Kris Tate. The Guatemalan artist combines wild animals, geometric shapes and bold colors in her work. Seeing these images we can not help but remember the 80s and 90s. What you think?

Connect is the name of this series created by artist Carolina Fontoura Alzaga consisting of different sculptures in the form of traditional chandeliers but created from recycled bicycle parts. It really left us breathless not only because it has a very powerful conceptual basis but also for its beauty. "This series addresses class codes, power dynamics, reclaimed agency, and ecological responsibility. The traditional chandelier is seen as a bourgeois commodity, a cachet of affluence, excess, and as such power. The recycled bicycle parts become a representation of the dismissed, invisible, and powerless, but are also an affirmation of self-propelled movement. The bicycle chandelier thereby creates a new third meaning of reclaimed agency" says the artist. We can only applaud these brilliant ideas.
Here in the northern hemisphere autumn has arrived, but for many of you spring is just starting. For this reason we want to share these beautiful pictures of Johanna Laskey from the blog Tant Johanna using spring flowers, colored ribbons and lots of imagination.
Still on the recycling theme and to surprise you, what do you think about a workshop where ideas come out of the screen and come to life. High school students from various cities of Italy with the OOFFICINA ROMA made a house using some recycled materials such as car doors, glass bottles, old oil barrels and many other discarded objects. The objective of this activity is to create an opportunity to debate and question about our way of life, the exploitation of natural resources, new alternative ways of construction, the importance of recycling and many other issues. You can read more about it on the website raumlaborberlin.
Today's post is dedicated to our friend Liginha. We will show you hundreds of uses of abandoned pallets in the streets of your cities. Ligia lives in Japan and sent us an email asking for some tips to decorate her new home. Among other ideas, we've talked about the advantages you can get when recycling a pallet. The following pictures we will show you are very cool, we hope you like them. Liginha loved them. What we do not know is whether in the streets of Japan you can find so easily pallets as here in Madrid! Liginha lol, can you clarify this doubt?? ;)

This time we have found this lovely wooden hanger thanks to our dear Emma. You will need:
- 3 wooden poles 180 cm height each - 10 screws - Leather thread - screwdriver - saw - a couple of hooks
First you must cut the ends of the poles in the right angles for hanger to stand on the floor once assembled. Then 40 cm from the top will be the union of the 3 poles with the aid of the screwdriver taking care that the distance in the bottom between each pole is around 50 cm.
Once the poles are together you wind the leather thread over the screw marks to cover them
We want to share with you some suuper creative ideas, inspiring and easy to make for those who are looking for innovation in gift packages. Today's inspiration comes from Pinterest of the brand BLANK .
Most Ghanaians do not have access to clean drinking water other than in “pure water” plastic sachets. As such, water sachet rubbish is a massive problem in Ghana. Millions of sachets are discarded daily and end up polluting rivers and soil since there are virtually no rubbish collection services.
G-lish turned problem into opportunity with recycled baskets when they married the urgent need for income generation in rural communities with the skills of traditional Bolga basket weavers and a need to re-use waste plastic sachets and scrap cloth.
Today's post is GREAT! I wanted to explain the idea of architect-designer Marcelo Rosenbaum and his magical bottles .. Oh yes! He made a vertical garden reusing this cheap material and the truth is that the result is really cool! Besides the ecological, the solution is ideal for tight and lifeless spaces. Hands On! ;)
Hi guys! We have reached the en of the week and to finish it well, I show you a supercool Café located in Germany whose name is Mundvoll Café. The difference of this coffee is that there are two very powerful concepts: recycling and rescover the idea of the typical grocery stores. In the following pictures you will appreciate these concepts. Look the fruit boxes, the pallets of the sofa, the lamps, the tables, and so.. in every detail. The project is authored by the Joint architectural Perspectives. And we have known this particular Café in this super cool blog we indicate: O Lena Modernário Muniz. You can also read about Mundvoll Cafe in the site design milk. A success!
It is about super cool lamps, very easy to make and they reach a wonderful effect. They are made with cans (food, paint, etc) and you can use them in the kitchen, in a workshop, a bar/restaurant, a room, several environments, depending on your taste, the concept and the decoration of the place. Also you can paste cloth or paper on the advertisign of the can. It will be very nice! The inspiration comes from a lovely blog: Copy and Paste.
