We at MAGMAX Design feel connected to a larger community. With that in mind we would like to share a bit of environmental inspiration that touched most of us here. Sometimes words are limiting when discussing the ideas of a sustainable world. Watch and take part with us to shape a better world.

In a quest for inspiration on Flicker, we came across an amazing natural artist Jenny Fowler. She cut from a giant tulip tree leaf with stem intact. Check out her profile at http://www.flickr.com/photos/jennyleefowler/. Fowler goes along with representing sustainability in her own unique way.

Significant Artifacts

You may not believe it. You may in fact question it, but we custom manufacture every product we design. Reclaimed lumber has so many fascinating qualities: the wood’s unique appearance, its contribution to green building, the history of the wood’s origins and the wood’s physical characteristics such as strength, stability and durability. The process requires intensive labor but it is well worth it. Often this is wood from from long-standing idle buildings, and its sometimes refinished for new purposes. Most reclaimed lumber comes from timbers and decking rescued from old barns, factories and warehouses and some companies have been known to source wood from less traditional structures such as boxcars, coal mines, and wine barrels. By reclaiming the wood, we not only create something beautiful , but it also preserves historically significant artifacts that would have otherwise been destroyed.
