  • Getting into the business of space making, 3form has found a new use for its Varia Ecoresin product: prefabricated snap-together tiles. The new system, called Ditto, has cross-shaped pieces that can be combined to create partitions and wall features, and can be cold-bent to form curved canopies. The tiles have 40% pre-consumer recycled content and can be installed in custom configurations to allow more or less transparency. ¢ 3-form.com

  • Created by Japanese architect Shigeru Ban for Artek, the modular 10-Unit System is based on L-shaped units that can be combined in different ways to make a chair, a table, or a bench. The chair and table each require 10 units, while the bench requires 20. Made of UPM ProFi, a wood-plastic composite of recycled paper and plastic, the furniture can be disposed of by incineration. Black and white are the standard colors; the chair measures 33" tall, 16" wide, and 17" deep, while the table is 27-1/2" square. The bench is 33" high and 31" wide. artek.fi
