An environmentally friendly, wipe-clean wastepaper bin and a chair, both made from a single sheet of 92 per cent recycled polypropylene, go on show at The Lighthouse in Glasgow this week until 22 June. Designed by Edinburgh-based Green product design group Blue Marmalade, the IB Pop chair (left) and Poly Rap bin (right) form part of The Lighthouse’s Creative Scotland programme, which showcases work from the country’s creative industries, including fashion, design and music. The watertight bin is available in six colours, and the free-standing chair has no fixtures or components. Both are available to buy. Visit www.thelighthouse.co.uk.
