Sustainable Design: making diamonds from air pollution and a chair for naysayers

This TedTalk is of a designer from the Netherlands who, among other things, created a solar bike path inspired by Van Gogh, a contraption that cleans the air and then makes the waste into diamond rings, and a chair that zaps people when they say two creativity-destroying words.


I like the quote he shares, attributed to Canadian futurist, Marshall McLuhan

"There are no passengers on spaceship earth. We are all crew."
