            Hi, we’re Cisco and we’ve been making sustainable furniture in Los Angeles for more than 20 years. In the last eight years, we’ve raised the bar even higher, with the introduction of our Inside Green line of 100% organic furniture. From the beginning, we’ve always believed that the parts of our furniture that you don’t see are just as important as those that you do. That means natural fibers, sustainable woods and absolutely no toxic PBDE flame retardants of any kind. Not now, not ever. Not even a little bit.

                Learn more smart ideas at http://www.people4smartercities.com East London Furniture builds sustainable furniture from 100% recycled materials, such as used pallets thrown away on the side of the road. They take something that exists and make it better, making East London better. RUEBEN: There's so much value in what people discard, I mean we've managed to run a business for 2 years on what people throw away. Hi, I'm Christian. And I'm Reuben. And we're East London Furniture. CHRISTIAN: Our concept is based in resourcefulness, reuse and sustainability. We make furniture from materials we find on the streets of East London. We use 100% recycled materials and found objects. So, we use a lot of pallets, predominantly wood. REUBEN: Upcycling is taking something that exists and making it better. In a way, we take things that exist but then take them completely apart and build entirely new things from them. CHRISTIAN: Basically it started - I needed a coffee table for my house. I was on the way to the hardware shop to buy some wood, on the way there I saw a bunch of pallets on the side of the road and I'm like, why would I not just use this wood? It's sitting on the street, it's free, it's closer than the hardware shop. So I dragged it back home, pulled it apart with a simple saw and a drill, made a coffee table. There was a problem with lots of empty appearing around London so meanwhile are a group that take empty shops and give them to short term projects to have a go at an idea So they give us a space in Whitechapel. We worked there for 3 months and from that opportunity, we were able to grow this business. JESSICA: We met Christian in 2010 with a space we had in Whitechapel at the time, which is in East London. Christian came into the shop, at the time I think he was unemployed and he was looking to fill his time while he was looking for a permanent job and started to build bits of furniture in the space by using empty pallets that he found on the streets nearby. It's an exciting concept and it's one that we're really happy to be involved with and to have had a positive impact in helping it get started. In the last 18 months, we've created roughly 220 pieces of furniture from about 500 pallets. We make tables, benches, stools. We've done cafes where we've done all the bar services. Any application of wood, we'll sort of try. Jaguar Shoes is quite an amazing bar in Shoreditch, every 2 months they completely renovate the interior so they ask artists or designers to collaborate with them normally it's sort of the walls, the wallpaper, but we're furniture makers, so we asked them if we could take out all the furniture and put in our own furniture. They said they've actually been getting more business because we've generated a different environment in that space, which I think they've really liked. JESSICA: East London Furniture has got started from just a real seed of an idea, and has managed to get that going to such a positive, massive impact that it is today. And I just would love to see that inspire other people to give something a try that they've been thinking about doing for ages. Making furniture from rubbish (maybe it's a bad idea) but how do you know, unless you have a go? That's the key, I think: Just to do it. If it's a good idea, it will grow.

                  Learn more smart ideas at http://www.people4smartercities.com Wanting to commute safely, Noemie comes up with the "Safe Way Home" commuter app, which has a map showing busy and well-lit streets and allows users to tag where they feel unsafe. I've just moved here. This place is just so different from where I used to live. This is my street. It's pretty cool. This is my street at night. And I don't feel that safe It's probably just because I don't really know my way around but I never know if I won't end up in a dodgy bad street or something. I think someone should make an app that shows which streets are busy and well lit. That way I could get home without going down dark streets. We could also use the app to tag places in the city where we feel unsafe. I think that's an app any city should have.

A little imagination can keep the metro station clean and make it more fun. This is my neighbour Paul VaddÈ, a lover of all things Parisian. He takes the metro everyday and there is one thing that really annoys him. One day walking through the streets he had an inspiration. It took some times to clear with the authorities but M. VaddÈ and his arts students friends finished a project that will make life a bit more fun on the way out of the metro station. All it takes is a bit of imagination and the job is done. Merci M.

                      The Zipstich Chair was designed by Ben Uyeda for the 19th episode of HomeMade Modern. Chairs are generally more difficult to make than benches or stools but here is one that can be made by stitching plywood pieces with zip ties. I was able to make 2 chairs out of a single 4’by8’ sheet of plywood. In the video I used ¼” plywood but if I were to do it again I would probably go with ½” thick plywood. The chairs are strong enough but I think over times the holes could wear through. I am not 100% happy with the lines of the chair so please experiment with this design and share your results.
