Peter Cook and Becky Northey are tree shapers. Their designs are so ten years ago; but still worth a post.

Materials used: water, sunlight, soil... and a sprout planted in 1998 of course. An examplary image of sustainable furniture.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
