Cycling and interior design: can they be combined?

August 5, 2010

Owen P is in charge of this blog. Can his love of cycling and his job as interior design editor for be combined?

My discovery of Bike Furniture Design says ‘Yes’.

The preeminent designer and producer of fine, hand-crafted, contemporary / modern furniture made from recycled and reused bicycles since 1990.

Sustainable furniture design at the Botanics

April 22, 2010

The Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh has a new visitor centre, the John Hope Gateway, a building designed with sustainable materials, energy saving measures and renewable energy production by Edward Cullinan Architects.

The John Hope Gateway is also an education centre, with areas for children to learn and discover about plants, with a range of permanent and temporary exhibitions.

On exhibition, the Wych Elm Project, showcases handmade furniture designed by Scottish furniture makers. The furniture has been made from a magnificent wych elm, Ulmus glabra, that was felled in 2003 as it had become infected with Dutch elm disease.
