"Recession-Friendly" Design

Good design does not always have to equate high price tags. In hard times like these even the Oscars are taking a recession-friendly approach with absence of the over-the-top, couture designs that usually shine on the carpet. Design can also change the pathway of spendings by introducing "recession-friendly" alternatives. A lot of interesting designs appear when we change our attitude.

Have a look at the 'More' cardboard elements by Giorgio Caporaso that are going to be launched at the Milan Design Week this April - aren't they useful and elegant and Recession-Friendly Design?

Or this tubesqueezer at right? I am curious to see what other interesting design products and solutions provoked by the economic crisis will appear. And can a recession actually spark innovation? What about you?
