Tiny House

Living the dream is not easy… but it is totally worth it once you get things going and find your flow.
The core idea behind noThrow design is about designing for a shiny green future and not for landfill… not only products but homes too, tiny homes to be exact.
So here is the one we built. Its called ‘Can Midge’ and we are very happy with the results. The idea at large was to work, play and live the eco-life, seek out sustainable living and explore and expand on it where possible. So part of that was clicking off the grid, plugging in some solar panels and putting on the tool belt.
Plenty of sunshine is what keeps things switched on and powered up, and the tiny structure is what keeps things dry, warm and happy.
Of course all the materials were locally sourced and at times experimental, and where possible we used recycled/reclaimed content. The front and back doors where reclaimed from a flat being refurbished in Barcelona, and a lot of the wood was recycled.
Sheep wool is what we used for the insulation, wool is great in ares with high humidity, and especially good at keeping the heat in the winter time and out in summer.

Compost Toilet

A compost toilet is a great way to get a loo with a view and an important part of going grid free. 
Here is what we designed and built. A ‘functional fairytale’ look is how things ended up. Design plans for this will be available soon in our Do It Locally section of our site, so that you to can build it yourself wherever you are.

WOOL FELT

Felt is a non-woven cloth that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers. While some types of felt are very soft, some are tough enough to be used in the construction industry. 
Felt can also be made from a variety of materials two examples we like are renewable sheep wool and recycled PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) waste. 
We have used sheep wool felt to make our famous Bloom lamp.

OSB

OSB [Oriented Strand Board] combines strands/flakes of wood in specific orientations. In appearance it may have a rough and variegated surface with the individual strips lying unevenly across each other (95% wood, 5% wax and resin)
The great thing about this product is the production method uses almost all the wood of the harvested trees, and small, young trees and faster growing species can be used. We have used this product to make the Hackney Shelf range.

HEMP FABRIC

Hemp grows almost anywhere and requires no pesticides or fertiliser.  The plant is good both for the soil and the atmosphere.
The potential for Hemp is vast – the fiber is one of the most valuable parts of the hemp plant. Hemp fibers can be 3 to 15 feet (4.6 m) long, running the length of the plant.
As a fabric, hemp provides all the warmth and softness of a natural textile but with a superior durability seldom found in other materials. Hemp is extremely versatile and can be used for countless products.
We have used Hemp  Fabric to upholster our Box Sofa.
