The GO Recycle bin is a really smart idea designed by by Hong Kong-based retailers Goodss Passion. Now if you look at the pictures below you can see why we say that this is a really smart idea. The lid of each bin actually has a molded sample of what you’re supposed to throw in them. The top of the bins are animated with sculptures of a bottle, tin can, and carton. These symbols are easily recognizable and clearly indicate the items allowed for disposal. As the designers put it, “intending to revolutionize the recycling industry and make it consumer-friendly, the idea of the GO bin is make recycling fun and convenience.” Finally We think that this idea could work because it’s simple, fun and very intuitive. Do you think that an idea like this could make recycling a fun and convenient routine, rather than boring and bothersome ?
Vega Architecture’s design for the Busch Home in Lakewood, CO is a wonderful example of how a sunken living room can still maintain a sleek, modern look. By keeping the depth of the pit fairly shallow and using furniture with clean, wooden lines, the space still feels light and airy. A pop of warm, lighter colored carpeting also creates a nice texture change when paired with the harder but more durable tile used on the higher level. When Amber Flooring installed their engineered prefinished square edge Stilnovo-Afrormosia planks throughout the Los Gatos home, they didn’t forget the living area’s conversation pit. Now the space is lined with the warm material, making it the perfect spot to curl up around the fireplace.
