Â We were happy to show you theÂ BotanistÂ from our friends at Orange22 way back when, but they’ve just take it to a whole new level by giving designers the chance to give back. The Botanist is a minimalist indoor outdoor table made from a single sheet of aluminum. The fun comes in as designers use hydrojets to cut or etch designs into the table surface.The Botanist Blank Canvas project has recruited some design heavyweights by giving them a royalty, then giving a match donation to the charity of their choice. This is a new twist for the product design community, and hopefully one that will continue.We promised not to release the list of collaborators until the public launch of the project at ICFF next week, but if we made a list of our top ten favorite product designers, at least five of them are doing this. Place your bets now!For more info you can check out theÂ Orange22Â website.
