Design Boom Green Life Awards

The Incheon International Design Awards (2009) had a call for entries on "green life". There were 3,709 designers from 96 countries that focused on this year's philosophy of "harmony with humanity and nature." Sounds simple, right? Well, there were 3 focused categories of:

1) Green design for humans (products and household items)

2) Green design for cities (infrastructure, building layout, etc.)

3) Green design for communication (entertainment, movie clips, and promotional items)

[Drum roll....]

And the winners are:
