Lamboo, Inc., a maker of architectural bamboo products out of Illinois, has this concept studio featured on their website. Lamboo Studio is made with several different Lamboo products, including bamboo interior paneling, custom bamboo furniture, bamboo content in windows and doors, and laminated structural bamboo in the roof and floor. Illustrating several uses for these bamboo products, the 304 square-foot tiny home has a wavy aluminum roof with integrated Uni-Solar panels and a composting toilet for off-grid living.
If you’re in the market for an engineered, wide-plank, natural flooring, Mafi is a great place to start. The company uses FSC-certified woods that are treated with organic, natural oils (and no lacquer). As a result, Mafi is “breathable,” “warm,” durable, and will not cup, gap, warp, or fail. The Colorado-based company has operations on both the east and west coast and can create a floor to suit your project perfectly.
The show home for Dwell on Design, Eco Fab House, which just sold for $66,100 on eBay, was garnished with a vertical living wall from Fyto Wall and Design Ecology. The system was set up with modular panels, a soil-less hydroponic watering system, and pre-grown plantings. Fyto Wall is estimated to require upkeep only once per month and can be used to reduce noise, reduce cooling loads, filter air, produce food, or, of course, add life to a design.
