It's estimated more than 80 billion disposable bamboo chopsticks are thrown away around the world every year. That's more than ten for every person on the planet. Environmentalists say the impact on bamboo forests is devastating. And now a Canadian man has come up with a way to recycle them.

We've just returned from another NYCxDESIGN which always wraps up with several days spent walking the aisles of the Javits Center for ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair). This year's ICFF was 30% bigger than years past, which meant way more things to see and check out. To kick things off, here is the first part of our favorites: It's always great to see what Flavor Paper is going to unveil and this year they knocked it out with several wallpaper collaborations, two of which are these. On the left is an almost 3D looking wallpaper by artist Mark Dean Veca , and on the right is by professional doodler Jon Burgerman , who made all those characters out of Play-Doh and then photographed them. The Drop series mirror from Skram features a drop-shaped mirror within a wooden frame that extends out to become a shelf. Stillfried was showing the CUP Sofa , designed by Eric Degenhardt and manufactured by Richard Lampert, that comes with a high back and sides that envelope you while you sit.

The Swedish furniture and home goods chain IKEA plans to expand to the Ukrainian market, the head of PrJSC Mandarin Plaza's board Oleksandr Chernytsky said. According to him, IKEA may rent one of the country's largest sales and amusement centers, Yuzhny, with an area of 450,000 square meters. Construction of the facility is planned to begin at the end of 2017 at 9 Hlushkova Street in Kyiv's Holosiyivsky district. IKEA is also looking in our direction. Their representatives have already voiced their plans: they came here for this reason, we met. The chances they will come here are good, Chernytsky said, adding that renters of space at the trade center will include other well-known international operators, whom Ukraine has long been waiting for, he said. Businessman Vahif Aliev, according to Chernytsky, has purchased rights to a land plot with the Liodovy [Ice Skating Rink] Stadium at 9 Hlushkova Street in Holosiyivsky district for construction of Ukraine's largest shopping mall and sports complex.

well, there is some refurbishment work that we have planned for it. Sometimes we have to make up little stories to make sure we have the right pieces of furniture in the right place for the right time. What is the secret to a good ceremony? That's very simple. Everybody has to know exactly what is going to happen and if they are very confident of the timings of what they have to.

They are also used as safe havens for cash, with many people buying an apartment during the construction phaseand keeping it empty, with a view to selling it in future at a profit. “This is where Ukrainians put their money,” said Tim Louzonis of AIM Reality Kyiv. “It’s rational behavior. It keeps prices higher than you would expect for income levels.” The apartment seen by the Kyiv Post was offered in “bare wallscondition, a standard feature of many new developments. This means it is sold without and furniture, fixtures orfittings and is little more than bricks and mortar. Equity growth on such apartments, say local agents, is expected to be higher in the long-term when compared to older properties. In terms of investment, once renovations have been done at a cost of $500 per square meter, such apartments can typically yield seven to eight percent annual return.

The obvious market for Proton's immediate expansion is Asean, the world's fastest growing car market with a population of 600 million, a right-hand-drive vehicle market where Geely has zero production presence. Here, Proton steps in to fill the void and the two companies working together will crack the Asean market faster and at a much lower cost, than each attacking the market on its own. Then again, to ramp up production, keeping new models in the pipeline will require the Proton-Geely joint venture to set up a world class research and development centre in Malaysia, which immediately translates to high value jobs for Malaysians. For Proton, it is better to be in a prospering partnership, than a money losing sole ownership. At the same time, this automotive joint venture will have other industries in the country, from oil and gas, to property development, furniture manufacturing and aerospace components, asking themselves whether they too ought to go global through the joint venture route.
