2. Green bed
Arthur Xin has designed the ‘Ecotypic Bed’ that gives you everything you would have ever dreamt about your bed. You would feel as if you are sleeping amidst the vines. The best feature of the Ecotypic Bed which is otherwise called the Green Bed is that you can grow your favourite vines on it. It works on kinetic energy provided by the battery which is stored beneath the bed. The kinetic energy is generated when someone lies on top of it. There are LED lights attached to the frame of the bed that gets lighted by the energy produced. When any physical activity takes place on the bed, the kinetic energy produced as a result is used to run the music system that is integrated in the bed. It also has a storage space under it. It also bears a flower box where the seed of any kind of plant could be grown and it would grow on its frames.
3. Recycled glass Countertop

It has a brushed exterior feel and an excellent scratch resistance since it has gone through the Eco Precast exclusive surface polishing process. It is scratch and stain resistant. It’s flexible yet strong.
4. Eco Shower
Victor M. Aleman has designed an eco-shower that uses power of the pedal to function, integrating an easy-going exercise schedule into the daily shower. The storage of water for the shower is at the base. When the user stands on the base made of wooden blocks, the water is compelled up into the tank overhead. When the wooden blocks keep going down, a cylinder shaped metallic rod comes out protruding that makes the user change his position to another wooden block in an uninterrupted dance step like pattern. The electricity produced by the turbine which is driven by the water that is directed up into the overhead tank, heats the water for the shower.
5. Shower Brake
To support water conservation, Dae Hyun Kim and Sang-in Lee designed the Shower Brake. It uses visual feed back to uphold the preservation of water. The quantity of water that has to be used is set by pulling up the shower regulator which is mounted on top of the water pipe to the shower head. As the process continues, the regulator falls in level giving a visual indication to get done with your shower before the water stops. You can obviously pull the regulator again, but that would be an obvious indicator of water wastage. The regulator also has settings for temperature and pressure.
6. Evening Breeze Canopi Bed
