HEATH NASH, FULLCOLOURFORM BALL
 
Employing the common and often necessary African tradition of re-using waste, South African designer Heath Nash has created an award winning light fixture, made from re-cycled bottles and other plastics. It won Finland's Habitare Ecodesign Prize, judged by world renown lighting designer Ingo Maurer. Nash won for his use of re-cycled materials and because he incorporated his local community by employing people to pick up and sort the plastic. Each piece is unique based on the combinations of the colors of the refuse.

 

TWO'S COMPANY BOOTH @ GIFT SHOW 2010!!!!

 

I found this re-cycled plastic bottle light fixture at the Spring NYIGF Show.....
It was hanging above the Two's Company booth ..... 
I asked if it was for sale & was told it was for display only .... such a shame!!!! 

 

I think it fabulous idea ....... has a great look & is ecologically inspired .......
I am horrified by the islands of plastic that inhabit our oceans and poison our fish!!!

Atlanta (blog 9/16/10) was first, then London (blog 9/23/10)......
Now a Pellegrino bottle lable at Sistina restaurant in New York City & it's really, real!!!!

 

This bottle was at the next table, they left ...... I grabbed it!!!!!
UNBELIEVABLE ...... Now, I know it's a trend!!!

Paul Smith Mini ......... Coming to NYC Soon!!!!!

Paul Smith's limited edition Mini Cooper arriving stateside in Las Vegas!!! 

 

Paul's "dream-machine's" exterior is covered with Smith's signature stripes and the interior has pops of color like a suit lining!!! In addition, the glove compartment and boot are lined in lime green..... so chic!!  The Mini left London for Vegas, then it's heading to LA, and finally a cross country trip to the Paul Smith store on Greene Street in NYC ...... a must see!!!

 

As usual the "accessorator" is tickled by Paul Smith's logo stripe .......
How fabulous to tool around East Hampton in this chic car!!!!
It would look soooo divine in my driveway!!!
