This clock runs on mud or soil! Dutch designer Marieke Staps figured out a way to make this little time device work by plugging it into the plant pot it comes with.
The metabolism of biological life together with the chemical reaction of copper and zinc produce enough electricity to keep a digital clock working. The plants are purely for decoration and a reminder that the technique needs water now and then to work. € 37,50

FlexibleLove is a seat designed by Taiwanese designer Chishen Chiu. He created a patent-pending accordian-like honeycomb structure which allows the single seat to be stretched to seat up to 16 people! The seat is made from recycled paper and wood and is manufactured using existing production processes to reduce the impact for the environment.
Check the video below for the endless uses of the seat.
