Mezzing In Lebanon Mezzing In Lebanon brings a slice of Beirut street life to the centre of London, celebrating utopia through the everyday designs of the people of Lebanon. The installation brings a bustling scene of falafel and coffee stalls, a small lounge cinema, street signs, carts, and even an authentic barber shop to Somerset House. As you sit, eat, drink, smoke and talk, you will be transported to the streets of Beirut. Architect Annabel Karim Kassar finds glimpses of utopia in the bricolage of Beirut's raw, functional and authentic urban interventions, and the diverse ways in which people occupy social space.

Recycled ocean plastics create terrazzo effect in Gyro table by Brodie Neill. London Design Biennale 2016: fragments of recycled ocean plastic are inlaid to achieve the terrazzo effect of the Gyro table, designed by Brodie Neill for Australia's entry into the first London Design Biennale (+ slideshow). Neill, an Australian designer now based in London, constructed the table from tiny pieces of plastic that have been salvaged from beaches around the world, including Tasmania, Hawaii and Cornwall. Each piece was separated by colour before being processed and arranged into a plastic composite. The visual effect is similar to terrazzo flooring, which is usually made from marble or granite.

Using chips of blue, white, black, brown and green plastic, the table's speckled top evokes the colours of the ocean. Its mottled colours fan out from the centre in a gradient, going from mostly white in the centre to black at the edge. The Gyro table was specially commissioned for the London Design Biennale 2016, which centres around the theme of Utopia by Design.

Don’t do it alone. That’s Tim Loftus, the sustainability manager from outdoor adventure wear brand Kathmandu, speaking at the Sustainable Brands conference in Sydney recently.

Sustainable Brands is a roving global event, having started in New Orleans in 2006, and now reaching six continents, with the Sydney rendition its first appearance in Australia. Across three days of lectures and workshops, attendees heard inspiring stories from TerraCycle, MUD Jeans, OzHarvest, Emma & Tom’s, Serendipity Ice Cream, Kathmandu and ecostore, amongst strategists, academics, CEOs and heads of communications and marketing.

Both local and global speakers – from typically conventional big business down to the Millennial entrepreneur – delved into the technologies, skills, ideas and collaborations that drive their brands forward within a sustainable economy framework. A strong takeaway was that business has the power to do good. Photos and text by Linsey Rendell.

The word ‘sustainability’ comes up a lot in our work. However it’s defined, sustainability isn’t an end point. It’s a philosophy, a set of values in action. It isn’t just about the environment (as vital as that is); it’s also about vibrant communities and how we all make a fair living.

Last millennium it seemed like we had to make a choice between profit or planet, economics or ecosystems. Now, an approach to doing things sustainably is widely accepted as best practice. With a focus on sustainable development and the right degree of accountability, it’s possible to see that growth for sustainable businesses may be what we’ve been missing all along. At Ecocreative, the way we see it, if we operate ethically and make a living we are well equipped to be part of ‘positive change for a sustainable society’. We choose to work with clients who share this philosophy and engage with a network of collaborators who appreciate why this is so important.

Designing a Movement: Seven Principles for Sustainable Action. The sustainability conversation has evolved radically since I started the Designers Accord two and a half years ago.

At that time, major magazines like Time and Vanity Fair were declaring "eco-wars," reveling in "eco-nakedness," and celebrating Indiana Jones-Athena hybrid "eco-pin-ups. " Industry conversations were punctuated with comments around recycling and material selection. Questions like "What's your end-of-life scenario? " became trendy corporate pick-up lines, provoking our clients into thinking differently about waste (thank you, Bill McDonough). Of course there's great progress to be made by focusing on these specifics—everybody loves the reluctant-hero story of Method, and yes, the improved practices undertaken by Walmart around packaging, composting, and supply chain will continue to have major positive impact.

Enter the interactive community. Last week I gave one of the keynote presentations at the 10-day film-interactive-music spectacle in Austin: SXSW. Principle 2. Designers Accord. Six top digital business card apps. Handing over a business card to a new acquaintance is now just a swipe, flick or snap away with your mobile device. In these tech-savvy times, there are apps that design, store and send electronic business cards to other mobiles. Others take snaps, using the mobile phone's camera, of printed business cards and sync the information to contact lists or keep the card images in a virtual-style Rolodex.

There's no need to rummage around in a drawer overflowing with business cards to follow up with new connections. Mobile apps make organising your business cards a cinch. But despite the availability of the digital technology, physical business cards are still popular, even with the emergence of apps such as Bump and CardMunch. Business communication and media engagement expert Simon Mossman, of Mossman Media, says there is still demand for the real deal. He likens predictions about the end of physical business cards to premature calls on the death of newspapers, books and magazines. IDEO Search. Our environmental policy - K.W.Doggett Fine Paper.
