Top Christmas gifts for those with an eye for design and the environment

With Christmas fast approaching the architects and designers at MMHQ have pooled our Christmas wish lists featuring the top gifts for those with an interest in not just design but the environment too.

This year we’ve been focusing on sustainable office design, not only benefiting the environment but also the health and productivity of staff. With the spotlight firmly on upcycling, recycling and sustainably sourced materials we’ve now spread this thinking to practical and beautiful gifts for Christmas.
