What happens to your disposable plastic bottles? Usually they are thrown into the yellow bin and put an end to it. Do you know that a standard 0.5 liter plastic bottle could turn into a stunning eyecatcher in your living room?
The knitted vase "Knitted Vase"
The Italian designer Libero Rutilo has developed an elegant collection of designer vases that combine 3D printing technology and upcycling. This project gives such useless items and items a second chance, such as the disposable PET bottles.
The vase with the lace "Lace Vase"
The original idea was to create only a gentle vase shape. The vase itself represents an outer shell whose upper narrow part has an internal thread. The thread is used to unscrew the bottle and so both parts become a whole. The 3D printed structure disguises the bottle and makes it disappear under its grille. The vases are suitable for 0.5 L PET bottles for mineral water or soft drinks with screw cap. They are used very often and can be found everywhere.
The winding vase "Sinuous Vase"
In the collection you will find four unique patterns. The first bears the name "Spider vase" (vase spider) - the most organic piece with a biomorphic pattern. The second vase is "Sinuous Vase" - the elegant look of this vase was achieved by winding wave elements. The third model is called "Lace Vase" and its classic shape and pattern are reminiscent of an amphora covered with lace. And the 3D pattern of the fourth "Knitted Vase" (knitted vase) speaks of itself - a fine knit pattern, which looks very delicate and harmonious.
The spider - "Spider vase"
Of course you will not make the earth much cleaner this way, but even just a reusable disposable bottle in your interior can be the first step towards a nature-friendly lifestyle.
Just put over a bottle ...
