Show: Made09 (furniture & product design)

Two good things spotted at Nottingham Trent University’s degree course show for furniture and product design (aka Made09) at London’s Truman Brewery, where – as everywhere else – sustainability is the watchword. First, a desk by Adam Mason, made from sustainable Bolivian rosewood and inspired by the pared-down sensibilities of Danish design; its pull-out compartments serve as both additional work-space and storage. And second, Rob Nicholson’s sweet and simple Pint of Light, a battery-powered frosted glass light created from the milk-bottle that made it in from the cold (pic doesn’t really do it justice. It is charming in real life).
