Product: EGO Bamboo Collection
Designer: Steffen Schmelling
Bamboo in a new design
Aarhus company EGO is nominated for Formland Design Award – Autumn 2009 for a collection of table items in bamboo. The company has launched an environmentally friendly production, the bamboo fiber is made into modern design products.
The uniqueness of EGO’s offering is to use bamboo in a new and different way. The result is a smart collection that has beautiful lines and forms – and is faithful to the natural color of the material. At the same time, thinking of the environment, the products are 100% degradable in nature after only 8-10 months, says the nomination committee.
EGO Bamboo Collection was designed by Steffen Schmelling whose targets have gone after the environmentally friendly production as replacements for melanin or plastic. The solution is found in bamboo-fiber, which has a natural binder in it. The collection contains several parts. The indicative retail price is from $ 149 to $ 349 sætvis.
