Product Design: Inger Steinnes has an eye for beautiful eco-friendly design

There’s nothing quite like really lovely-looking product design, and when we discover that a creation we like the look of is environmentally-friendly too there’s nothing to stop us from gushing about it. And can we gush.

Inger Steinnes, a young Norwegian designer, knows what we’re on about. She makes aesthetically pleasing products which are malleable to a customer’s needs without becoming gimmicky, and eco-friendly without making you feel like a terrible person when you guiltily remember the yoghurt pot you accidentally threw in the non-recycling bin earlier.

For her project Brewseries for example Inger has made a collection of vases from a material named Brewplaster, which mixes used coffee grounds with plaster and colour to make something nice out of an otherwise useless waste product. Similarly thoughtful is Dupla, a range of trays she designed for the café at the Norwegian National Gallery, which can be taken apart and put back together again in endless combinations to create a range of different trays. Could she tick any more boxes?
