kartonki recycling box

This project was part of material and manufacturing course. I wanted to make a tumbler that doesn't slip easily from the hand, that stands firmly on the table and that doesn't hit to the nose when drinking from it. The glass is hand blown in Nuutajärvi glass village with the help of the students there.


Kartonki recycle box  2015

This box is meant for recycling the cardboard (milk cans, cereal boxes). The problem is that often that everyday cardboard waste ends up piling up to the kitchen worktop if there is no proper recycling system. 

This box can be kept on the worktop, it doesn't take much space and hides all the cardboard. It takes four one liter milk cans inside. 

Prototype from plywood and steel handle.
