We were asked by Do The Green Thing and WWF to produce an 'everyday object' of green inspiration for Earth Hour 2015. So we decided to 'recycle' an old idea and create a new apocalyptic 'No Globe' to encourage people to consume less. But things didn't first go to plan...
After surviving a bumpy ride down to Pentagram in London for the launch exhibition, the first globe exploded spectacularly (and rather prophetically). Luckily someone was on hand with a camera (and kitchen roll) to catch this disaster movie in glorious slow mo.
We mopped up and made another which joined 18 other Everyday objects from designers and artists from around the world.
