rafts, mobile phones, spimes and sustainability, all in one


'Every thing has a story. We help people to link to it,' says Finnish designer and system developer Ulla- Maaria Mutanen. Mutanen created Thinglink (blog) to be an open online database for anyone, from artists to designers, collectors and trendspotters, to add and publish portfolios with their favourite things.

For a presentation at the Dott Festival, Mutanen's Thinglink team explored how their basic concept could be combined with mobile phones so that you or I would be able to scan products and read their environmental credentials before purchase - more info on WorldChanging.
