100x100 Lamp

shop
Crowdfunded recyclable lighting from Dutch designer Daniel Schipper. $100.00

Daniel Schipper's 100x100 lamp features a pendant shade made from white or transparent recyclable plastic. We'd be more stoked if it was recycled instead of recyclable, but Schipper's production model is pretty interesting. To secure demand and finance production, the Dutch designer won't start producing the geometric lamp until he gets 100 orders. At only 100 euros, it's......read more

And gets even sweeter when you discover that the Pop Bottle Dining Barge is a fundraising project for the School of Fish Foundation, which......read more

California Bummer

read
Statewide plastic bag ban voted down by California lawmakers.

Well, that sucks. The Democratic bill seeking to ban plastic shopping bags across California — a measure we at SHFT adamantly supported — failed in the state Senate late Tuesday night. It would have been the country's first statewide ban, although a few California cities already prohibit their use. With the bill's downfall, the state misses an opportunity to be at the......read more
