Green Products 2012 – One Last Look

By:  Janet Thomas, RID The year is almost gone and it seems a grand time to take one last peek at some fun Green products premiering in 2012. Whether you are freshening up your home for the Holidays or planning a new workspace for 2013 here are a few environmentally conscientious choices to explore: For the Coca-Cola lover who digs that classic Retro look check out the Emeco Navy Chair.  Each chair is made from 111 recycled Coca-Cola PET bottles, and the colors were put through Coca-Cola’s sustainability approval process before going to manufacturing. If acoustics are on your mind but you still want something hip take a look at Buzzi-Space. From seating, to spatial dividers, lighting or sound dampening Buzzi-Space uses PET fiber technology to create BuzziFelt  and recycles wool for BuzziFabric. Looking for that sizzle in glass? Livinglass features recycled glass and resin sheets that are etched or embedded with organic materials. The Fresh collection is etched glass with a new twist. Need a little light on the subject? Dash from Steelcase uses LED technology and 8 watts of electricity to highlight your work. Dash is dimmable and comes in 8 pop colors. Maybe you need that unique piece of artwork to finish off a space. New York by Moss & Lam is made from spalted maple panels torch burnt with the map of lower Manhattan.  Moss & Lam have unusual furniture , flooring and accessory items as well.
