Lost Values / Elena Corchero (
Lost Values holds the vision of innovating craft by melding it with technology and vice versa, to inspire a future where design is environmental and emotional yet smart and playful. Elena develops products which are meaningful, which will hopefully be treasured and cared for, and never discarded or simply consumed. Consider it to be as much a question of sustainability as it is of design.
