Sustainable Egg Packaging. Brooklyn-based Emiliy Zirimis, a Senior Communications Design student at Pratt Institute, was assigned to create a sustainable package that is meant to house four duck eggs that come from Cowberry Crossing Farm – a biodymanic farm established in upstate Claverack, New York.
“In regard to the farm’s logo – I was inspired by the farm’s biodynamic methodology. Biodynamic agriculture is based on astronomy and on the alignment of planets which dictate the ideal crop times throughout the year. And so with that said, my logo is inspired by circular astrological calendars. I added overlapping lines to give the logo a more earthy and farm-like apeal,” explains Zirimis.
As for the package itself – it is made from one piece of standard chipboard, uses no adhesive and has only one-sided stamp printing. Gonflable.

Aristide Antonas is a Greek professor of architecture whose imagination pushes the envelope on adaptive reuse, recycled materials and portable dwelling beyond merely mobile homes. This two-story used bus is imagined as a potential hotel or a portable commuting community space for professionals on-the-go. It features seven beds, a living room area and a restroom and would fit int typical mobile home parks, though finding dealers with parts for sale might be a bit trickier. It is an intentionally non-radical work of construction, requiring no contractor or elaborate plans to be built – just a group of people who wish to turn an ordinary vehicle into a multi-person housing unit on wheels.
