First of all, we LOVE connecting with artists, designers, musicians, and innovators of all stripes. Our mission at (echo)witness is to appreciate those who are pushing new ideas and to further our understanding of the world by experiencing and building upon the works of our creative community. We were recently contacted by a group of design students in Serbia, who are working on an experimental design for these sustainable seating areas. Dubbed Amorfurniture, the outside is meant to resemble a cube, while the inside contains an amorphous seating and lounge area. This furniture can be recycled and rebuilt to any specification at any time…definitely a cool idea.Spread the word.

Humans are creative creatures. That’s what we believe, and so does Sir Ken Robinson…In one of our favorite TED talks, he claims that “schools kill creativity” and that we in fact are all born creative…that we don’t grow into creativity, we grow OUT of it (or rather we get educated out of it)….He encourages the creation of a system that nurtures creativity, rather than undermining it.Nurturing creativity…hmmm, that seems simple enough…”If you are not prepared to be wrong, you will never come up with anything…” Children don’t worry, they create…Give this talk a listen and be ready to be inspired (and entertained!).
This TED talk is so inspiring, we just could not not share it. Dan Buettner reminds us that the small things in life matter. Take care of your body (move naturally and eat wisely) and your soul, use your brain (have the right outlook) and be part of a community…Find more inspiring talks on the TED website, here!
