Bamboo is also known as "vegetable steel" due to its strength and extreme lightness. Craftsmen, architects, engineers, designers and distributors from around the world have collaborated in this selection of fifty constructions and over sixty product designs. All are made from this natural material that enables a new form of sustainable construction and boasts many advantages: as light and durable as carbon fibre, made of resistant fibres, and during its growth bamboo absorbs massive amounts of CO? while releasing 35% more oxygen than other similarly-sized trees.
