Enough White Teacups

Enough White Teacups combines art and science to showcase how design can be used not just to create consumable items, but to improve living conditions around the world. A design firm in Copenhagen awards designers initiatives to plan and build affordable housing, prevent blindness, destroy landmines, deliver vaccines and blood in remote areas, clean up the oceans, and help prevent infant and mother mortality.  Segmented into five categories, this inspiring film examines inventions that embrace the goals of social, economic, and ecological sustainability outlined by the United Nations.
