Most designers I know (myself included) read an enormous amount of magazines for both research and pleasure. A rather displeasing side-effect is the hideous amount of paper waste that results from this habit. Lekkerhome has a solution: hand crafted vases made from used design magazines. Yes, they are waterproof.
12/9 UPDATE: I've heard these vases are sold out and the artist will not be making more. Ebay, here we come!
