Book Description

15 Jun 2009
As we become only too aware of the damage man has caused to the planet, more of us want to furnish and decorate our homes with products that do not harm the environment. But being sensitive to the environment does not mean you have to sacrifice good design. More and more designers are creating products that are both beautiful and ethical. 1000 New Eco Designs is a showcase of contemporary product design and interior products that are ecologically sound. Informative and visually inspirational, the book acts as a handbook, guiding readers through the complex issues involved in creating and choosing eco friendly designs for the home. A series of icons show each productâs âgreenâ credentials; highlighting the use of recycled materials, sustainable materials, carbon neutral, low air miles, so that readers can see at a glance the individual characteristics of each product. The book also provides full information on where to source and buy the work featured.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, functional, eco-friendly products 24 Feb 2011
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Length: 1:21 Mins
The book features 1000 eco-friendly designs on its 352 pages. It's beautifully laid out like a classy furniture catalog except without the price tags. There are information on the materials used for production and also a website included.

The designs are beautiful and look functional. It includes furniture, lighting, kitchens & bathrooms, textiles, decorative accessories, tableware, walls & floors, products, outdoors and kids products. The range and variety is good.

Product designers should find this book inspiring. Maybe shoppers too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of ideas 6 July 2010
Format:Paperback
I have not doubt when I first popped this book in one of my best friends home.
As I opened it there were pages full of ideas to develop and to take in consideration for future projects.
Or just to flow by the pages.
IT is a MUST for me and for those WHO ARE CREATIVE MINDS.
Enjoy it! The purchase is worth it :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very inspiring and some hidden gems 6 April 2010
By Danielle R. Taraschi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are already familiar with eco products then you will be surprised with the hidden gems in this book. I'm not anywhere near green living, but I appreciate good design. There are definitely a lot of products that combine eco-friendly materials and great design. Many products might inspire you to create new products of your own. The finishing on the cover seems to be silkscreened onto recycled paper.

1.0 out of 5 stars don't buy this book 4 Feb 2010
By D. Keehn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
unless you want some ideas of things to make on your own, don't buy this book. You have to go to each products website to get any information that's useful.
