ReGreen

ReGreen is the ideal solution that can recycle and take the best advantages of wasted food perfectly. ReGreen is durable, easy to clean and recyclable. The distinct structural design is by the principle of circulation and environmentally friendly, which can be easily disassembled and recycled. Advanced technology, making ReGreen turns the wasted food into organic soil and compost in just a few weeks. It perfectly solves the difficulties of obtaining organic compost in the metropolitans.

Packzero

PackZero proposes to transform the current resource depleting online retail distribution system, with a circular delivery network that combines inflatable reusable packaging with hybrid pickup and delivery experience. Central hubs at locations that users frequent or find easily accessible will be built, thereby reducing overall 'product miles.' The reusable package is made of durable biodegradable material, which research estimates can be potentially used up to 100 times.

No Footprint House

The NFH is developed for serial production, based on a larger toolbox of prefabricated residential typologies. A first prototype was built for a European family in the southwest of Costa Rica. They chose a two-bedroom configuration with steel structure and pine wood finishes, which was shipped to its target location on one single truck. The building is designed around a central service core in order to optimize logistical efficiency regarding assembly, maintenance and usage. The project seeks for integral sustainability in terms of its economic, environmental, social and spatial performance.

Rhita

Assembly and disassembly designed for sustainability cause. With an Innovative hinge structure system designed, 70 percent of parts were reduced, no glue or rivet for fixation, no sewing of the inner lining, that makes it easier to be repaired, and downsized 33 percent of freight volume, eventually, extend the suitcase life-cycle. All parts can be purchase individually, for customizing own suitcase, or parts replacement, no returning suitcase to repair center needed, saves time and reduce shipping carbon footprint.

Vitality

They used a natural method of compost. They found that earthworms, as a common creature on the earth, are not only friends of crops, but also friends of humans. Life practice shows that vermicomposting is a kind of green composting method: earthworms convert food residues into agricultural fertilizer through their esophagus. This method of recycling reduces the additional cost of garbage collection, storage and transportation, and also makes food waste disposal easier.

Kuss

Kuss are sound absorption panels designed to bring calmness into homes, open offices and any other public spaces by absorbing the excessive noise. Panels are made out of ecological and non-toxic composite by using organic rich lake sediments, sapropel as a binder, mixed with natural fibres. The extraction of sapropel helps to improve the quality of freshwater resources and lake ecosystems. By using the extracted sapropel in design production, both the noisy city environment and the ecosystem of a lake are improved.
