Design for a Living World

The Nature Conservancy commissioned high-profile designers such as Isaac Mizrahi, Kate Spade, and others to produce textiles, furniture, jewelry, handbags, and decorative objects that were sustainable and used materials and methods from local craftspeople around the world. Some of the innovative designs, found at the top of the page in the "Project" tab, include FSC-Certified Plywood Furniture", "Chicle Latex Vases", and "Bamboo Furniture". The materials used for the projects can be found under the "Place" tab, and include such varied locations as Gondwana Link, Australia; Lava Lake Ranch, Idaho; and Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The website is well designed, and the user can view the projects by designer, project, or the place the materials originated. Once the user has chosen a mode of viewing, a slideshow and accompanying description of either the place, designer, or project will appear on the screen. At the top of the screen are available links to the complementary methods of viewing these materials, either buying the book or visiting the exhibition in person.
