ecoDesign Gets an Update


 The third edition of the ecoDesign sourcebook is out with brand new products and updates on previous favorites from the brightest minds in green design.

Alastair Fuad-Luke, promoter of the slow-design and co-design movements, came out with the first edition eight years ago to rave reviews, and this edition doesn’t fall short. Thankfully, the book has stayed true to form by keeping its easy-to-read layout and helpful resource of designers, manufacturers and green organizations in the back—not to mention hundreds of stylish products from user-friendly chicken coops to reclaimed midcentury desks.

Recycle your old edition and visit Chronicle Books for the replacement.



 One of the new products is Eglu, a modern coop from Omlet. Eglu comes complete with organically raised chickens and a chicken delivery person to help you with the basics.



Lucy Turner’s cheery design on laser-cut laminate was the secret to reclaiming this vintage bureau.
