Tom Dixon

I have posted this because 2 of our groups are working on projects rooted in the sustainable arena. Its worth noting that designers including Tom Dixon are working with bio materials such as bamboo. His work for Artex (Bambu) and these Eco Ware designs for his own company utilize bamboo as their main material for production. What's rather unsatisfying for me in these design is that the forms chosen for his Eco Ware don't express the qualities of the material in a new and interesting way. Allied with this is the somewhat retro aesthetic which reminds us of 1950's melamine products we are all still trying to forget. Lots of room for improvement.
