Annie May spent some time this past weekend at Dwell on Design. She explored the convention center floor and rounded up her top five favorites.

1. Project H Design
Project H Design connects the power of design to the people who need it most, and the places where it can make a real and lasting difference. This Hammock Bag from collection, Abject Object, a line of multifunctional products designed and manufactured in partnership with the Downtown Women’s Center and Chrysalis, was one of my favorites at Dwell!

2. TOUCH and Inhabitat team up for a pop-up eco shop
It’s the stories behind these Cilindros and the Alcofa Tote that make them one of my favorites. Each are made out of recycled milk cartons that are cleaned and then distressed by handicapped individuals as part of their rehab. They are then sent to a woman’s prison where the final product is sewn together. Read more about the shop.
