In the last post, we talked about the raffle for a good cause. Today, we are going to share more information of each of the raffle prizes and the reasons why our industry friends would support the legal case that seeking a judicial review of the UK Emissions Trading Scheme.
“Season of Light II” and “Season of Light III”
These 2 pieces of original artwork by London-based artist Jane Peng were created with acrylic on canvas and pays homage to nature and the raw elements. Through her work, Jane seeks to capture the impact of life on the terrain of our own inner world. As an artist, Jane caught the attention of art galleries in Paris, Shanghai, and Singapore early on, and her works have been selected for group exhibitions in London, with more exhibitions slated for next year at marquee events such as ArtExpo New York. Her latest works will be seen next at an art auction at the Mandarin Oriental Shanghai, where Jane Peng will be the event’s feature artist. It is Jane’s hope that this piece of artwork can help light up the home or office of the raffle winner, and bring joy and contemplation over time. These paintings come ready to hang and are double varnished to ensure that it will last for generations to come.
“Protecting the health and sustainability of our planet has been something I’ve been passionate about since I was a child. Georgia is tackling an extremely important issue that will have ramifications on our society for years to come. I believe it’s a deeply worthy cause to fight for and it’s my great privilege to be able to lend my skills as an artist to this campaign.”Jane Peng, Jane Peng Art
Deep Bio chair
The Deep Bio chair seat is made from an innovative biopolymer line of material known as Plantura, that is highly durable and can be compostable at the end of its life.
“Anything that helps make the environment better is a good thing. A cleaner planet should really be the goal, and for that brief 2/3 week period when the world literally stopped, we all noticed the difference of cleaner air, quieter environments and a better connection to nature. Sadly we now find ourselves in a sea of disposable masks, more plastic and even more fumes; as individuals, I believe we can all play our part in recycling. I believe if Georgia can win this case against the government, we are playing our part in getting more individuals and businesses recycling for a healthier planet.”Natalie Rice, Sagal Group
Icarus laptop table
Icarus is a stylish, agile little table ideally suited as a casual surface to use a tablet or laptop to catch up with work, or just as a spot to place a nice cuppa. The steel base is made using circa 56% recycled content and is 100% recyclable, whilst the new Bamboo top option uses one of the most sustainable materials available. Entirely renewable, fast-growing and sustainably harvested, bamboo is 100% recyclable and CO2 negative over its life span.
“We are delighted to support Georgia with this. The environment impacts us all and whilst we endeavour to manufacture greener products we want to encourage recycling and not the easy disposal option. There are many incinerators who adhere to high standards and have filters in place to protect the earth and also work alongside universities to find new ways of safe and environmentally friendly incineration. We would hope that Georgia can change the current ways to match those that do it the right way. It needs to be the same for everyone throughout the UK.”Nikki Bytheway, sixteen3
Radic8 “Hextio” Air Purifier
The Hextio is a compact and portable air steriliser that deactivates viruses and improves indoor air quality.
“Having met Georgia at an industry Magazine round table on Air Quality we basically took over the whole event like we were the only ones in the room. The conversation carried on and we’ve been in touch ever since discussing projects and initiatives, ideas and technology. Georgia’s “positive disruption” is kicking ass and we’re delighted to be supporting her.”Nathan Wood, Farmwood

Her campaign and this legal case can change the future of this city, country and our children.”Harsha Kotak, Women in Office Design

“We at Aircharge have a firm belief that over the next few years, handset manufacturers will start to remove charging cable ports which will in turn reduce the amount of charging cables that are shipped with handsets today. We all have too many cables which eventually end up in landfill sites. This needs to stop. Technology will help with achieving this now and in the future.”John Brooks, Aircharge
“I’ve had the pleasure of crossing paths with Georgia at Women in Office Designs events and believe this is incredible cause she is fighting which myself and Isomi are proud to support!”Mell Davies, Isomi
