10 great Eco-friendly finishes for the home.

Black Rhythm Flensted Mobile

An elegant aluminium construction with fluid, rotating individual sections that evoke a delicate sense of balance and harmony – serving as great focal points in a room. These fantastic Flensted mobiles are handcrafted in Denmark using traditional, low-energy production methods and simple raw materials.

HK$2,000, www.ecocentric.co.uk

Curly Lamp Shade

Designer Charlie Whinney’s creation uses over 15 metres of steam-bent Ash – sourced from sustainable forests in the UK – arching and coiling around a central frame, creating a lively and captivating play of light and shadow. Available in two sizes.

From HK$3,100, www.charliewhinney.com/shop/

Boxseat

An ingenious marriage of functionality, style and sustainability all provided in this seating/storage solution from Hong Kong eco fashion boutique ECOLS. The lovely patterned grain in the wood, which is reclaimed teak from deconstructed buildings, gives it a handsome finish.

Price on request, www.ecols.com

Ovetto Recycling Bin

This novel design by architect Gianluca Soldi encourages users to recycle their waste through its engaging and innovative design; made with recycled plastic, with three compartments for separating recyclables and a nifty bottle crusher at the top.

HK$2,200, www.ecocentric.co.uk

Live Moss Carpet

An intriguing concept; this soft-grass bathroom carpet takes its sustenance from the drops of water and the resulting humidity produced by your daily ablutions. The mat is made up of a patchwork of ball moss, forest moss and island moss, with a base of plastazote foam ensuring the prevention of mold and other equally-unsightly growth from forming.

Price on request, www.yankodesign.com

Recycled Thermometer and Wall Clock

A smart collection of slate-like recycled paper clocks that started with humble beginnings; each of these clocks began life as vending machine coffee cups, which now serve as handy devices to divine time and temperature – great for keeping on eye on time when out on the patio.

From HK$350, www.ecocentric.co.uk

LOFT loves the elegant, portable design of these glowing orbs, with over 10 hours of illumination provided from a single charge. The enchanting glow emanating from its LED light source adds a subtle ambience to any scene – whether it’s resting poolside or sat by the bed.
