Design objects from recycled bottle caps

Designer Athanassios Babalis created a shopping bag and stool from recycled bottle caps for the Green Design Festival 2008 in Athens which starts this Wednesday. Babalis collected the caps from his workmatesand an extended network of friends using 370 to make the bag and 1250 for the stool.

The simple technique he developed can be applied to many other objects and is detailed in the following diagram.
