Not able to hoof it to New York City’s Cooper-Hewitt Museum for the Nature Conservancy’s Design for a Living World”? Fret not, because we’ve brought the exhibit to you through the magic of the Internet.

In our slideshow, you’ll find prominent designers from the worlds of fashion, industrial, and furniture design (Yves Béhar, Maya Lin, Isaac Mizrahi, Hella Jongerius, and Kate Spade, just to name a few) who have explored natural, sustainable materials from specific parts of the globe where the Nature Conservancy works, from the grasslands of Idaho to the forests of China’s Yunnan Province. The result: Beautiful yet practical objects with the potential to revolutionize entire industries and reshape lives.
