Go easy on the planet—buy new products with a backstory of recycling and rebirth.


With a little applied design, thriftiness can be elegant. This Plate-U coffee table (designed by Veli-Matti Tolppi, a young member of the Finnish design incubator IMU Design) is made from vintage plates mounted on modern steel tubing.
