light objects :: sustainable design competition
Sponsored by Core 77 :: "Light Objects" asks participants to submit design concepts--for any product, service or system--that are thoughtful, forward-looking, elegant and environmentally beneficial. Designers are encouraged to go farther than making their entries 'sustainable' or merely reducing the negative impact that production or use of an object has on the environment. Entries should push the concept of lightness in every way, from material selection and reduction to objects that actively improve our environment through use. The idea of "light objects" creates new opportunities for sustainable innovation in the future.
