Submissions: Design Another Use for an Everyday Object

Check out the submissions from our latest project. The winning idea will receive two tickets to Compostmodern.

Earlier this month, we asked you combine design thinking with sustainable thinking by repurposing an everyday object. We were blown away by the innovative and quite original submissions, which reused everything from rubber bands to Venetian blinds in a visually-compelling way. Here are our favorites, as well as the stories behind them, courtesy of the designers. Take a look at these examples of intelligent upcycling while our judges peruse the submissions.

The creator of the winning idea receives two tickets to Compostmodern, the design and sustainability conference taking place January 22 and 23 in San Francisco. We'll announce the winner tomorrow.
